Taking a bit of a break...

 It's May... 

P/C Dan, from a lovely trip to Norway.

... and it has been a very full few months since the start of the year.  I'm feeling in dire need of taking a little bit of a break, so I'm temporarily going on a hiatus to do a little R&R.  

My plan is to catch up on a bunch of reading (mostly non-work), go on walkabout, become a bit of a flâneur.  Eat some great food, travel hither and yon... mostly yon.  

If something remarkable catches my eye, I might pop back into SRS for a quick note--but the current plan will be to come back here on May 31st with some new observations about the world of online research and the general joy of finding out about.   

Have a great month of May!  (A little musical commentary...)  

Keep Searching!  

P/C Dan. The master state of mind being sought. 


  1. "A near-synonym of the noun is boulevardier. Traditionally depicted as male, a flâneur is an ambivalent figure of urban affluence and modernity, representing the ability to wander detached from society with no other purpose than to be an acute observer of industrialized, contemporary life."
    …while you may have urban affluence, it is hard to imagine you as detached or ambivalent…
    hope you take notes of the strange and peculiar as you stroll the coastlines of Paraguay (or Bolivia) –
    and return refreshed, revitalized and only slightly bruised… as is typical of many wanderers… ;-P 😱
    say hey to Elmer in the ether, safe travels & eating.
    a coastline somewhere (there were bunny ears there a second ago…what's up, Doc?)

  2. this came rolling down the hill… would it make a walkabout easier?
