On Hiatus

I mean, I have been on hiatus already. But I'm making it official now.

I know I didn't even get through the end of our time in Europe. I didn't post pictures from Padova and Venice the second time around, Vicenza, Verona, Pompeii, Naples, December in Gent.

Here's the truth: thinking about it kind of depresses me.

We've been in California since coming back from Belgium, and it's not been my favorite thing in the world. Seven months in an area of the state that is, politely speaking, not where I would choose to be.

So, in spite of having interesting stories to tell about November and December, I just don't feel like I can do it. In spite of Naples being one of the most awesome places I've visited, I don't really want to go through the photos or think about it too deeply right now.

Hopefully circumstances will change and I'll be able to feel more positive about it in the near future. In the meantime, though, I kept feeling like it was hanging over me because I hate leaving things just open-ended like I did here.

If you miss me, you can visit my art blog, which I restarted on Blogger. I previously had one on Typepad, but that was a dying venue, so I just jumped ship.

Looking forward to a time when I will want to post about those last months. Till then, take care.


  1. So sorry you are bummed right now! Sounds like your trip was special! I grew up in Mendocino!

    1. Thanks for the good thoughts! I actually will be reviving this blog because we have a new job and adventure beginning soon. :)

      I really liked Mendocino; I'd like to go up there again sometime, definitely. It seems like a fun, though remote, place to grow up.
