You post is a bit pointless Niki.
He already left again.
a title is a curious thing...

I think He's gone again...

At least, he's been gone for about a month now.
lost, not forgotten

But then I'm back again.
I kept doing this for years, it's nothing abnormal. Actually, something strange would be seeing me staying here more constantly. When I stay away, it's never because I explicitly want to, and often happens because concentrating on doing something that takes time and demands attention, draws me away from the internet in general. My oscillating mood also contributes; with time I'm slowly getting better, and farther from an episode of (clinical) depression that took place as much as sixteen years ago and lasted about a whole year: the rate of improvement is dramatically slow, but also very regular. Olaf Stapledon, if I don't remember wrong, once said that it took 45 years for him to become young, so I suppose I'm in good company.

Didn't he died at the age of 44?

Here is his wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olaf_Stapledon

Never heard of him before, but he managed to stay at least 8 years young.

Actually, I'm not sure if it was him who said that; I vaguely remember that quote to be reported in the introduction to "Last and First Men", but perhaps Stapledon was quoting someone else, or the writer of the introduction was. I'd have to check the book.

Just looking at the Wikipedia page it says he died at age 64, not 44.

Just reread my post again, and the post of Alex before that one.
going nowhere fast...

Besides, Olaf's not dead, he's just tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk. Lovely plummage!

Oh, belated Hello to Alex!!!

(I'm using a borrowed computer right now on occasion...)
