My room is not quite what you see in the photo, although, as I’m writing this post in bed, I’m lying next to tall bookcases. But it is definitely a dream: to have a study and a library, with an impressive desk, a comfortable armchair, and a windowsill-turned-bed where I could have a nook and a nap.
The time I spent away from my blog was rather productive. I won a translation contest, finished another book, wrote content for several sites, contributed articles on education, translated a couple of books, and still managed to get some sleep! Sadly, my oldest dog died at the beginning of September.
I also travelled to New Jerusalem monastery not far from Moscow, and I’ve got other trips planned. I plan to share photos of them soon.
I also found out that some people really care when we disappear from the view. Given the situation with the pandemic, this is understandable. So I am grateful to everyone who inquired about my whereabouts. I am, as the photo suggests, at home, doing rather well.
