Hmmm, I meant to have a little hiatus, I think I may have overdone it... 3 years and 4 months - oops.

In all that time, apart from day to day functional stuff, I haven't written a thing, and haven't read much either. Writing wise, I've been totally stagnant. How liberating! Well, no, not really - I haven't had the energy for writing - have been going through a thinking and learning period and have been totally immersed in my day job. It has all been very worthwhile - I am wiser as well as older - what more can one ask?

I really had almost decided never to come back to this blog - I felt that I had moved on too far - but having commented on Kirk's
Reading Henry James blog yesterday, and being on leave from work at the moment so having some time to spend on myself, I decided to wander back through the open door. I actually went to visit Barbara Smith's blog first and got a great surprise to see how things have moved on for her and what great success she's having - go Babs!

So I will have a little about think why my Garbo moment 3 years and 4 months ago became so much more. I suspect I had simply bored myself and needed to go away and top up with some new experience to freshen my material - or maybe I am just a natural hermit...

Thanks Rob. I'm slowly catching up with what's been going on in the on-line world (so much!). Great to see all your success :o)
