Return from hiatus

So, this is not going to be a full new post. Not just yet.
I need to dip my toe back in, and not let ...gulp... an entire 5 weeks without posting a single word become too much of a mental block.

By way of apology, I thought this Time Out New York article on whether social media is bad for nyc was interesting, and worthy of consideration. I was at a great exhibition in MoMA a couple of weeks ago and it really was full of people too busy photographing art to bother looking at it. Made me glad I didn't have my camera. Anyway, it's not excuse-making, but I think it's an interesting thing to ponder in these hyper-connected days of ours. The flip side is of course that I have often quite simply forgotten to take photos or gotten my act together to sit down and write a few words at the end of the (many) fascinating days I have had of late, but the actual living of the fascinating days seems to have gotten in the way...

So, my old year resolution - I think I need to master the art of little and often.  Less diary keeping, more observation. And thanks to everyone who has cajoled and clamoured and coerced me to get back to this.

And for any non-facebookonians who are concerned I might still be homeless, I got an apartment. The very day after the previous post. And it's wonderful. More to follow.


  1. Yay, you're back!! Can't wait to read all your news. Glad you're still enjoying TO too!

  2. Yippee! Welcome back. I confirm the greatness of your new apartment.
