It's nice getting to know people a bit better here.
I love to knit and wish I had more time. This work thing gets in the way of me finishing projects.
I love music. Lately I've been singing every night. I've sung Vivaldi, Verde, Willan and Monty Python. As you can imagine, my taste in music is broad.
I love to explore and travel. I love learning new things about places and people.
I love reading, and have recently discovered the joy of reading while knitting. Yay for audio books!!
I like dark coffee and good black tea. Irish breakfast is my favourite.
I used to say I was a cat person. Now that I've lived with a couple of dogs, I appreciate both dogs and cats, and enjoy having them in my life.
I enjoy being creative, and again, wish I had more time for that.
IMHO 'leaving' means no more involvement - no starting threads or responding to them. No 'like'. I wouldn't go so far as to say that the person leaving couldn't check in occasionally, but following along regularly would mean the person hadn't really left.
