It is so hard to believe, but the end of The Dent is here. I was hoping to have something really profound to say, but I think my earlier retirement announcement expressed most of my feelings quite well. While I know that I am making the right decision, I will really miss sharing the latest Tori news with all of you. It has been truly the best 10 years of my life. The Dent informed the Toriphile community from March 25, 1996 until May 5, 2006. In that time I have met so many wonderful people and shared my love of Tori's music with so many. The love of her music continues and will continue to grow, even without this web site. I plan to be at as many future concerts as I can, and I will still be active in the online community as time and energy permits (including my co-editor role on undented.com.) I will truly miss all of your emails to me with the latest Tori news, or simply to share an interesting Tori story. Some of you really shared some special Tori moments, and those will remain with me as I begin a new chapter in my life. Thank you all for the support you have given The Dent. I never thought back in March 1996 that my little web site would grow into something so big. My little dent in the Tori Net Universe became something much more, and I have all of you to thank for it. While I know in my heart that it is "time to wave goodbye now", that does not make this any less sad or easier for me. I will miss you all so much.
And finally, thank you Tori. Your music has touched all of us, and has not only challenged us to think, but has led us to find each other through our common love of your music. We have formed some incredible bonds as we shared what you have given us, and that will continue after The Dent as well. I look forward to seeing and hearing what you will share with us in the future. Thank you for the inspiration that has made running The Dent a true joy for over 10 years. The Dent may now be in my past, but my appreciation of your music will continue for as long as the muse inspires you to write. (Toriamos.com has posted a kind farewell to The Dent, and I thank them for that honor.)
Thanks and hugs to all of you.
