I visited the place where we last met.
Nothing was changed, the gardens were well-tended,
The fountains sprayed their usual steady jet;
There was no sign that anything had ended
And nothing to instruct me to forget.
(from the poem “Absence,” by Elizabeth Jennings)
So, what the heck does it mean?
Well, I’ve been away from Wine & Walnuts for well over a month, so this excerpt from one of my favorite poems seemed appropriate.
And I wanted to post something, some little tidbit, to announce that I haven’t gone away for good. Nope, it’s way more pedestrian than that.
I’ve simply been nose to the grindstone working three part-time jobs, to the tune of 60 hours/7 days per week, for the last couple of months. Which is a grind, but necessary for the short term.
So while I attempt to adjust to this schedule, blog posts will be a little less regular. Just briefly, though.
Because, very soon, I’ll be BAAAACCCKKKK. I’m about to free up about 20 hours a week in my schedule, specifically so I can come back here, to Wine & Walnuts. And to food and wine and cooking and eating and drinking, and writing about it. Can’t wait. : )
That is all. For now.
