The End of This Blog

I'm still blogging at ...

Black Raku Tea Bowl, Freer Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, from our visit there last month.
I'll be continuing to write about many interests including Japanese art and literature, international food, and travel.

I started this blog in April, 2006, when I was about to leave for a month in Israel. On a previous stay in Israel, I had recorded my impressions in a series of emails, which I collected later, and I realized that a blog would be a better way to let friends share my experiences.

Later that summer, I decided to separate my blogging activity into specialized streams: particularly, to separate food posts. Thus I began my food blog. Now I intend to re-integrate all my blogging into a single stream: my food blog. In 2016, I'll include posts about travel, wildlife, and reading there even if they aren't about food.

A good move, Mae. I struggle with Chopsticks and String -- the book blog I post on about once a year, and usually it is a dual post with the Gypsy. I'm glad you'll keep your travel posts, though -- don't care where they are, I just enjoy them!

I'm sure yoou're making the right move Mae - When it becomes more of a burden than a joy its time to find a better way of doing things. I enjoy all your posts - and like Jeanie - doesn't matter where they are. All the best for 2016.
