“Haitus: Noun, usually in singular; A pause or break in continuity in a sequence or activity.” (OED)
That’s what’s happening today. After six years of weekly posts, though thick and thin, good times and bad, a short break is upon me.
I started writing regularly here back in 2013, for a variety of reasons. The blog, and its years of posts, have helped me achieve some goals – not least focusing on my personal and professional writing.
My scribbles here have also helped me process and progress through some significant life events – career changes, emigration, personal loss, mind-opening travel trips and more besides.
For the foreseeable future, though, posts will not be weekly, as before. But they will continue – not least because this remains a forum for my personal writing, itself a product of all-important reflection and creation.
On that note, I’m embarking on this haitus by re-visiting one of the most-read posts: about a 2013 walk across Paris in the footsteps of one of my literary idols.
Until the next one then, it’s not “au revoir”, just “à la prochaine”.
