|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.
