Briefly Interrupting the White Noise

This blog has been fairly inactive for the last nine months, except for a short article in French. Some of you have been kind enough to inquire after my health and whereabouts; let them be thanked here. The reason for my silence is quite simple: I have nothing to say. I've been fighting depression for one year and a half and it's taken its toll on my intellectual activity, resulting in a worsening of my reader's block (I have only read four books in 2013, only one being a mystery) and a general difficulty to put ideas together, especially in a foreign language. Also, more knowledgeable and articulate blogs have emerged that say what little I say better than I ever would.

Now I hope it's just temporary and I'll be soon back in business. I miss sharing my thoughts with my few but dedicated readers.

I understand this all too well, my friend. Hoping all works out for you. Having depression rob you of your love of reading is perhaps one of the cruelest of side effects. Wishing you nothing but the best in the days ahead.
