GL Announcement: Gowanus Lounge Will Not Publish Today

September 18th, 2008 · 25 Comments

Our apologies up front: GL will not be publishing today, having lost a very big supporter and source of inspiration and intellectual kinship, except for possibly posting some items submitted by our faithful contributors. We are very, very sorry. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading these last 2 1/2 years.

    sorry for your loss

    sorry to hear about your loss.
    no need to apologize. your blog is THE BEST. it’s not the regularity of it that makes it so good, that just makes it better. so, now, and in future, take whatever time you need, for whatever reason, just leave a “check back tomorrow” sign on the door…

    Hey, what happened? Who died? Please don’t say someone who contributes to the blog. Best wishes through whatever you are going through.

    I hope everything is okay. Even one day without GL is a loss. We miss you! All best, Louise at OTBKB

    Your first sentence makes us think that whatever loss you experienced, you’ll be back tomorrow.
    However, by the time I read the last sentence, your absence sounds more permanent. I hope whatever loss you’ve experienced, you will be back soon.

    Take care of yourself first, then take care of our curiosity and need for news and links.

    I love reading this site so much. It helps me feel more tapped into the brooklyn universe that I live in. It’s an important part of my day and really helps the community. Please come back– when you’re ready, of course!

    My boyfriend and I are devoted to Gowanus Lounge (he’s a photographer, and I’ve been trying to nudge him into the photo pool). We are sorry for your loss, but don’t think no one reads or cares- it isn’t true.
