Citing recent events as well as personal reasons, Elise Tomek has decided to shut down swallowingtacks. I for one will miss her.

Very much.
If only we could get her to reconsider. All the good people seem to be giving up. And they shouldn't. Perhaps it's mainly our fault for not encouraging them while their sites were up.

I don't blame her. I don't blame her one bit.

The words in her last post echoed much of what I felt as I watched 911 unfold. That I wasn't living enough, and that there were more important things to do than what I was doing.

While the web continues to be a part of my life, there are changes for me IRL, and so I relate completely to Elise's decision.

She'll be missed, but I say good on 'er.
