I'm not dead and neither is this blog

The fact is that I work as a translator. This means that I alternate between periods of bleary, frenzied overwork followed by burnout and periods of terrified anguished worrying that I'll never work again. I've been in the first phase since last Christmas and the burnout has caught up with me, I'm afraid.
With a bit of luck, by the end of next week I'll be human again. For a while. It's not that I'm getting any vacation, ah-ha, what a quaint concept. Just that I'll probably get to sleep for a couple of days. My fond hope is that among the various human qualities that I'll be getting back then there'll be the ability to write to this blog.
