I'm loathe to announce the death of Sterne - last time I did that it was reanimated within weeks - but I do feel that the time has come to bring proceedings here to a close, at least for the time being. Behind this decision lie the usual reasons - boredom, desire for change, a feeling of despair and constriction whenever I think about the blog or try to write something for it. Anybody who has maintained a blog for longer than six months will recognise these feelings well.
I'll be starting a new, hopefully substantially different, blog shortly. I will also continue to blog at Sarsaparilla, and I have begun contributing to Club Troppo's Missing Link Daily digest.
Thanks for reading!
