The Silent Traveller

©Britta Huegel


Hi, Dear You, 
it's me.
(Thanks to Rosemary's comment - wich you can read below - I changed now the beginning of my text, because I evidently quoted a scammer).
I have now visited  Paris and Amsterdam - both oh so lovely! - but did not feel like writing about it (same phenomenon with Venice this year, you rember?)
And so I stopped writing at all. 
I had to do a lot to work on my professional project (the world is small: while doing research I unexpectedly unearthed a blogpost of John Gray - about Hinterland!)
But now I think: I'll just skip Paris and Amsterdam (I am old enough to do as I please).
I'll remain a "Silent Traveller" (which is by the way a phantastic series of older books, written by Chiang Yee) - but will "Rise and Shine" again - on these pages of "Dear You".
See you (hopefully again).
Britta

  3. Everyone needs a break from sharing sometimes. Breathe deeply until you feel ready again. I do hope you want to come back when you hear the muse.

    1. Thank you, Emma! It is a bit hectic at the moment, though joyful - so deep breathing helps a lot!

  5. Lovely to see you back again Britta - be wary of that blogger who brought you back into the fold - he is a spammer who has also visited me - look carefully at what it says beneath his name!

  7. Dear Rosemary, thank you!
    Yes, I started to mistrust that blogger too, when I found out that he commented on so many posts - also old ones. I blocked him on Google+
    The same seems to be the case with "Unknown" - saw him on Tom's blog, too - but how to block an "unknown"?

    1. I think I found out - blocked that as spam.

  8. So good to see you on my sidebar again, dear Brigitta! Glad to learn you blocked sin soleng --appeared on my blog too but I couldn't see how accompanying links to Tai pornography or บาคาร่าออนไลน์ (which, if I recall correctly, refers to gambling) could have anything to do with my post about a squirrel.

    1. Oh Geo., you cheer me up everytime: the connection between a squirrel and gambling :-) - well - there is a story of the Moomin tales, where a squirrel is forgetting always everything -- running around to find its hidden acorns - it might be the same feeling, if it discovers one again, as a gambler feels when winning?
      Hope they do not blow up our blogs or use our photos. The World wide Web should not turn into a WWWW - a Wicked World Wide Web, I hope (in vain, of course, but nevertheless!)

    2. Oh, I read your squirrel post just after writing this - how delightful!
