SuperTom - Thanks. And I know I risk being thought of as a crackpot, weirdo, mental patient, etc by saying all of this - and I don't care. This kind of news is too big not to share, especially with those who have ears to hear.
I thought we were actually going to hear about this years ago, so who knows when they will actually release the information. Timing seems to be everything in these types of situations, and circumstances can change which shifts the timing - this happens all the time.
Having said that, I'll be suprised if we don't hear an announcement this year. The last time I asked about timing, I got anytime from March 2011 onward, and before the end of 2012 for the reasons I've already stated.
Everyone - And if anyone else has substantial information about this, either through a direct source or your own experience, please feel free to share. This is only my understanding at the moment.
Weena - When I was studying for my Masters, one of my teachers said "And the more a client is able to laugh, especially at themselves, the more healthy they are". That's been my experience for years. Humor is Divine! C'est fantastique, no?!
And your reaction of possibly "freaking out" is a common theme, which is why it has taken so long to prepare for this. I mean, you actually have a some self-knowledge and deeper understanding. Imagine what this might be like for those with no real self-knowledge, no interest or background in any of this? No one wants mass hysteria type of scenarios, which is why even the announcement will have to be well-handled.
PS - Personally, when this happens, I'm throwing a huge celebration.
