The ever-friendly robots of wordpress inform me that I have now been posting at this blog for five years, during which I have given glorious birth to six hundred and ninety five posts. There have been mountains and valleys, oceans and creeks, showers and fogs, plains and swamps, jungles and parks; but on the whole it has been enjoyable, educational and elusively enigmatic (which, after all, is how I like it).
What’s more, this is not the end. I am fighting fit, and eager to contribute more to this blog than ever before. The memoirs will continue, of course, alongside other observations. Go forth, said he, and preach ye the power of obscure European literature!
