First off, this is not a good bye; this is just a changing of the seasons.Thus in your field my seed of harvestry will thrive,
For the fruit is like me that I set
God bids me tend it with good husbandry, this is the end for which we twain are met
I have been the guild master for a while now and it was never something I wished or desired. I took the job because there needed to be a strong central voice for the guild, and …and now the guild needs a voice again. Life has a way of sneaking up on you and absolutely demanding all your time and energy. I am stepping away for many reasons, mostly because the position needs to be an active one just like all the other officers positions. I wouldn’t be a good leader if I didn’t follow my own rules; therefore I would like to thank all of you for the past two years and many years before that as an officer and guild member.
Thank you for all your wisdom, constant discipline, loyalty, and inspiration to this guild and to me. It is with a heavy heart I am tendering my resignation. As of today 11/29/16, I will be passing the baton and chair to a new guild master. He was heavily favored by all the officers including myself to succeed me. I am so very glad he is stepping up. I would ask all of you to support him as he takes the guild into the future. He has been a sound counsel for me and others and I know he will do well for you my fellow guild members. I have faith in him as should you all. I will let him make his own announcement as I don’t want to spoil the surprise.
My fellow Guardian….the guild is yours. Happy Hunting!!!
-OdinslayerFarewell to thee, farewell to thee
Thou charming one who dwells in shaded bowers
One fond embrace ere I depart
Until we meet again.
