The continued existence of this site is currently in doubt. That may not be a big deal for you because, frankly, it's just one more tedious blog among tens of millions of the damned things, but having written online in one way or another for just over thirteen years, it's a relatively major decision in my self-obsessed world. Although this place returned to a semblance of regularly updated activity in recent months, having lain almost dormant for a long while, in doing so it became something I never intended. I wondered on more than one occasion if I should even be offering certain thoughts and ideas for public consumption (though never to more than a handful of unfortunate readers), yet at the same time I didn't think it was entirely wise to completely retreat into myself. While I still think avoiding such isolation is a good idea, I've also realised that it's perhaps not best achieved by continuing to spew words onto these crisp white pages - not least because of the many personal memories contained in the extensive archives. For the moment, then, An Unreliable Witness is offline. It might be back, it might not. If it does return, I'll need it to be something different. If it's just going to be more of the same, it's better that it doesn't. Whatever happens, thanks for reading.
