Hello Everybody,
for a long time I did not believe I would write this post. I volunteered here for a little less than 14 years. It is time for me to move on, at least for a while.

After a long time of limbo, in which I considered every possibility of continuing, I decided I would like to go. Real life are rather hectic at the moment. I astablish my own social venture which goes well and requires my time and strength. I see I have no energy left to be a proper bc and dpl and really take care of things. So I decided to leave for a while. I do not know how long, but I think it is for the best.

I would like to thank you all for lovely 14 years. Thank you for letting me manage some recording of rare books which would not have been available without us. Thank you for letting me read some books about distant places and times. Thank you for who you are, for all your kindness and understanding. I wish you all the best. I wish you good luck in everything you do. With love,

I'm glad things are working out for you in real life Stav - we will miss you but it is hard to commit fully to many things at once. And hard to know when to stop sometimes.
Best wishes for your future and for your project.

Awww, Stav...
you were my very first co-BC in my very first group project. Thank you for showing me the ropes all these years back! :clap:

I wish you all the best in the future, and who knows, you may be back earlier than you thought!

Good luck! :D
Cheers, Ava.

While I can't tell you the name of the book, I know it was you who first encouraged me to BC a project. Thanks for all you've done to support others throughout LV. Best wishes for all you're doing now and in the future.

Yes, we will certainly miss you, and you have contributed to a lot of projects in the time you've been here. You've helped me to discover a lot of really interesting books I wouldn't have heard about otherwise. In particular, I am grateful to you for coordinating The Heavenly Twins, which is a book I very much enjoyed and that I still think about often.

Hi Stav,

Best wishes in your current endeavors. There are many books in the LibriVox catalog that are due to your choices of books to suggest and/or BC over the years. I'm sure there are a great many grateful listeners who have enjoyed them.
