I have been away. I've been away such that even when my blog crossed the one million milestone (probably two weeks ago?) I didn't, couldn't, even notice. I hope all of you understand that this blog is so much my own personal landscape (which reflects the picture I've chosen) that it's difficult for me to not have been able to write as much this year.
My feelings on time are ever complicated - torn between work, family, friends and own personal space - there will likely never be enough time. But, I want to thank the ever faithful and loyal readers, your support is really what keeps the site going. Now enough of my ruminations, I'm going to clean up a chinese novel review (first in months!) and some translations.
thank you for reading!
