How addicted am I ..
... to blogging?
I'm about to find out. Being off to France for a week, I may be off the air for that long, but only if the withdrawal symptoms don't get too acute.
A last word ... in the Guardian yesterday an excellent piece on
Edward Said, which made me dig out my old copy of Orientalism, which was one of the most enlightening books that I have ever read. It helped me throw off many of the more unpleasant aspects of Australian middle-class culture of the Seventies, with which I grew up, although also left me with an excess of idealism that it took Thailand to throw off.
P.S. Just discovered that the dictionary wants to replace "blogging" with "flogging". It's not that bad, surely.
