Just recently I wrote the following email to everyone on our mailing explaining that I was going to be resigning from the role I have taken on over the last 3 years or so.  It is a role one asked me to take on and I haven’t been paid for it so it might seem an little odd to resign.  But I know that things are not going to get done that were being done, or at least not in the same way, and I wanted to explain, in advance, why that would be. I also wanted to explain a little about the hopes I had in terms of building on what we had learnt and why I thought that something worth doing.  I was not saying that it is all over just that it will have to change as the current state of affairs was no longer sustainable for me.  No one can keep going without being resourced and something was going to give.  It was very nearly me and it would not serve anyone or anything for me to have sacrificed myself.
