Dear reader

I didn't think I would be gone so long.

I just popped out for a year, but now I don't know when I'm coming back.

Thank you so much for your encouraging comments and emails coaxing me out of hiding. I promise I will return one day, and take up from where I left off.

For now, I am being nosey in Vietnam, where I am also keeping a blog about my neighbourhood. A cliche about living overseas is that the novel environment heightens your senses, that you notice the exotic in the mundane. This is why we're all aspiring writers and photographers on holiday. But Nosey in Newtown taught me you don't need to buy the plane ticket: there is nowhere more intriguing or exciting than your own street.
 
So stay forever nosey.

Until next time,
Nosey in Newtown.
