We are slowly recovering, me and my brother, that is, from the untimely death of our father. We are trying to put his things in order and see where we stand.

Having spent the last two years taking care of the old man’s failing health almost full-time, we find ourselves now both out of work, and looking for any kind of job to help us pay the bills and move on.

Which means that I’ll have less time for writing – because writing is something you can do more or less easily while sitting by a bed-ridden person, but not so easy when you are working in an office, or in a field.
And this is bad, because I have a ton of things to write – with contracts signed and expecting readers (a lot of them, hopefully!)

In our job-hunting, we are currently slamming against the classic…

you are too old/you have too many qualifications

… problem that’s typical of this country – and it’s felt even more strongly now because of the continuing financial crisis.
But we will manage.

This means that Karavansara will not shut down.
Posts will remain erratic for a while, but we are still open for business.
Or leisure.
Or whatever.

Thank you all for your patience and your sympathy.
