over and out

This will be my sign-off report here on the agent b files.

Blogs are a weird thing. First they were counter-culture, then main stream, and now old news.

I started this report file almost five years ago as a means to communicate to anyone out there that might be going through a spiritual desert like myself and family. Instead, writing became more therapeutic than I had expected. Sharing stories of our adventures in the desert while on assignment in a very religious town within a poverty culture backing has healed me more than I knew.

And amazingly, a few folks took me seriously. Real live friendships grew from this, as evident of my recent annual gathering in Lubbock, TX with G13 from the Boston cohort of agents...and also with a new friend from Kentucky who recently visited family here in the fair mother city.

But as always, the story continues. Just not here. I suppose I'll let the agent b files float around in cyberspace indefinitely or until some googlebot wipes its existence.

As for my family, our new assignment awaits north of the US border. We leave this weekend. Over the past twelve months doors have closed for this current assignment while new ones opened wide for our new gig.

As for the cast of characters here on the b files...I will never forget them. I had a chance to see Obi-Wan one last time in his new residence in Waco last week. A trusted friend of his and recent god-send in his life (who is currently taking care of Obi-Wan's estate sale) and I drove down to deliver some of his belongings. I can say that Obi-Wan is well cared for and visited by kin folk daily. The Sanfords came by yesterday to say good bye and get a hair perm. What else would you do when you say goodbye? The Tiger and The Bulldog remain in prison for another month or two,so unfortunately I won't get to say goodbye to them.

As for you and anyone who's bothered to read this, thank you. Your communication is invaluable.

I do not know if I will continue with a new blog someday. But if you'd like to keep in touch and don't already know me, please leave a comment or email secretagentb AT gmail dot com.

All the best to you all.

I was just thinking about all of this tonight. Feels like the end of an era and yet.............little flutters of great and good hope stir.

May God cover you and yours in all you do and everywhere you go, B.

I've enjoyed reading about your assignment the past 2 years or so. I hope you'll be fulfilled and filled up with excitement and passion in your new gig. Hope you'll start up the blog again, someday, too. Peace to you and your family. Take care!

This made me a little teary! I think I'm remembering all the feelings of up and leaving everything and everyone behind to follow some wild dreams...and how exciting it is!

I've enjoyed reading along with you life...and even getting a couple of agent assignments through the years.

Safe journeys for you and your family.
