@jean ah! :(

You've done such a good job, Jean. This is especially true in light of the leap in absurdity of the world in recent years.

Your new home already sounds fantastic. :) The quote you shared sounds like the exact thing I should print out and hang up as one of my big goals for the future. Can't wait to hear about your projects!

@jean Thank you for everything you have done. You having me as a guest on Micro Monday changed my life, quite honestly. That was my first podcast. It lit a fire. Without that experience Hemispheric Views would not exist. Thank you for all the Photo Challenges, the Discovery timeline, and for making this place one of the nicest spots on the Internet.

It’s comforting to know that you still will be a part of Micro.Blog, and that we will be seeing you here in the time to come. I remember you from my Twitter days, and when @manton said he had chosen you as the new community manager, I said he couldn’t have picked a better person for the role, and I was right. I hope the PWAS will continue in it’s current form. 🌊👋❤️

@jean If you don't look at Micro.blog well enough for a few days, everything changes. 😱

To be honest, I don't even know Micro.blog without you. In my eyes, the tool was brought to life by the very good community manager. On the other hand, you do what many people don't do. Going your own way. And this leads you to what you have described. I wish you all the best for your future!

One question: didn't you move out of your house back then into a smaller flat because the house was too big for you? And now you're moving back into a house? 🤔
