To my excellent readers – both excellent people and without doubt, expert readers!
I write to say farewell, for a while. I am departing for a month to go camping in wild places, trekking through deserts, living with nearly-but-not-quite lost tribes and tracking elephants or other fluffier, but sharper fauna. But don’t worry, I will only capture them with my camera.
I will only rarely find internet on these travels, so I may not have the pleasure of answering all your comments during this time, but please know that I value and appreciate every one of them, and I will enjoy spending the time to properly enjoy them and reply to you all when I return in August.
I will try to schedule some pre-written posts to go up whilst I am away, but they are likely be less frequent than usual. I had hoped to get around to all the pending awards and nominations before I departed, but sadly, I have not been able to keep up. I have recorded every one I am aware of, and I will look forward to completing them with more time when I return.
I will leave you with a some travel quotes, warmest wishes to you all!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
One’s destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things.
Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.
