For just short of 11 years I have been working on this blog with scarcely a day off over that period. It is becoming more and more difficult to do this, both in terms of censorship, electronic interference (as well as the complexity and horror of events) and my own health which seems is declining.
Often I find it hard to find the motivation to turn on the computer to “do the news”. Even today, the photo I wanted to attach to the this article refused to download.
I am really needing to take some time off to reassess what I can and cannot do.
Quite simply, I feel overwhelmed at a time when my physical and mental energy is not really up to the job.
I am therefore going to cut myself some slack and not worry about the blog too much while I take a break to reassess.
I am never far removed from events and if I see something I regard as particularly urgent and important will be posting immediately.
