A long time passed

I've not posted on here for quite some time - a little over a year. In truth I was not sure I was ever going to post on this blog again.

As anyone knows who read my post from April last year I was diagnosed with depression and my personality changed a little. I stopped reading completely and cut back severely on my watching sf or horror. I just didn't have the interest.

Well it's now more than 16 months since my diagnosis and I've still not read any fiction. I did start reading again although it's been non-fiction only. I've read my way through a number of science books including a great biography of Joseph Priestley, a fair few history books with the current one being a general all-encompassing history of Germany. Oh, and two great books by Simon Winchester.

Screenwise I've watched little sf/horror, although seem to be working my way through Nordic Noir - a list of Crime films / TV series made in Scandanavia. (By the way, anyone who enjoys a good crime show and might have enjoyed Girl with the Dragon Tattoo should watch The Bridge - just fantastic.)

But writing wise nothing! Not had even the slightest desire to hit the keyboard. It might return one day - just nothing doing yet.
