Hiatus - Weston, MA

How a hiatus looks as modeled by Henry the dog

So I'm taking a hiatus from this blog. I don't know how long I'm going to "take a break" but more than a week and less than a year. I expect to return, but I also expected winter to be over by now. Snow is expected on Wednesday.

Why am I taking a hiatus? Because the blog is going somewhere I didn't expect and I haven't especially liked. Instead of being amused by repatriation to the US, I am finding it incredibly easy in some respects and impossibly hard in others. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the words to make it amusing (which is my whole reason for blogging) and I'm finding it instead rather a hard part of my day.

So, I'm going to "give a think" as we say in Portuguese and see whether this continues or if I take a new direction. I won't stop writing for sure, but I will stop publishing for now. I doubt my absence will cause a great downturn in internet traffic numbers but I shall miss throwing it all out there. For now. 

Who knows, maybe I'll even find a day job. Weirder things have happened. 

See you soon.



  1. I will miss your blog. Being from the south, I at times don't always understand things that go on up North, so I do learn from you :) I hope you return soon, even if its just for a "here or there" post. Be well, enjoy the rest of your winter (its already hitting the high 80s here) and I will look out for a blog or two in the future

    1. Thanks Katie. I really appreciate you posting comments here and always showing your support. It means a lot! I will be back...

  2. I will miss your musings both the amusing and the not so thrilling. It keepa my mind going by giving light from a different perspective.

    I will miss your blog posts too......hope you do return to them soon. I've lived in this area my whole life but I love hearing your perspective as someone who was formerly living abroad for as long as you had!
