Ladies and gentlemen,
Signoras e Signori,
Señoras y Señores,
Mesdames et Messieurs*,
worrying what might be the long-term consequences of such a hiatus, I thought it's better to decide in favour of a hiatus interruptus.
May either those forgive me who would have loved this hiatus to never end, and consequently feel deeply dissatified, and those who felt ... well, let's say irritated. :)
I was irritated, myself, as I did not intend to have a break. It just happened, or rather I let it happen. Even more strange: I did not miss blogging (very much).
Why? Don't know. Summing up all possible reasons would probably take too long, and boring you is one of the last things I wish to do.
So let me just thank those of you who left kind comments and / or encouraged me via email.
And now, may this beginning, too, bear a special magic. :)
* to please la curieuse (see comments) who would obviously prefer this to Madames et Monsieurs :)
