Truly, how rude and inconsiderate of me to disappear just like that. I'm sorry. Pakistan was burning, and so much was being written about that. My heart ached too much, my brain brittled in despair; but hope - good old hope - has once again been the florence nightingale that it is supposed to be.
Following the despair, I took a month to plan and prepare for another hard-earned European trip, the other month while we were at it. We returned less than a week back and I couldn't but ignore all your lovely messages. I am, firstly and importantly, going to spend time getting up-to-date with all your blogs, and only then can I consider writing more on my own. I owe that to this community.
Also, it helps that by God's grace, Pakistan seems to be doing better. And we shouldn't be asking for more than baby steps.
