It was always going to be a trick for me to feed the blog in the latter bit of the summer, as I’ve been planning almost 5 weeks of travel, much of it without internet access. A few days ago, though, an unfortunate event pushed the timetable forward a few weeks. My 4-year-old daughter had a playground accident that left her with a broken leg, which is encased in a cast from toes to thigh for a month or more. So, until at least September, I’ll be resisting the urge to blog and tweet, while I focus on the non-negotiable jobs of taking care of an immobile, injured child and keeping up with professional obligations.
