This is just to let everyone know you won’t find me in the blogosphere any more. I’ve got the 7-year itch, and I’m testing out life without an audience. The vast spaces of outback Australia and intense time with family made me rethink the huge number of hours I spend blogging.

Wishing you all well as you pay homage to decay and stretch your photographic capacities; indulge a passion for gardens, your own and those of other people; move to Portugal and eat cake; find quirky objects and write splendid poetry; walk the Camino; document the allotment and a past in Africa; reflect intimately in photos and words; and have many wonderful adventures in travel and life.

I’ll miss all this. But I’m eager to see the shape my life will take without all the richness you’ve brought to it. Thank you for being so important to me.
