To describe May 2010 as 'difficult' would be an understatement. It was memorable in the sense that I was pushed towards my maximum endurance limit in many aspects of my life ie work and family. Losses in the family, a challenging and almost impossible to execute fieldwork regime and strains on friendships meant this May was far from mundane. As I type on my mobile phone hundreds of kilometres from Accra, I'm reflecting on how I've become much older and wiser in such a short time. I'm also announcing my return to the blogosphere. After all, life's tragedies and comedies have created ample fodder.

Sorry about the hard patch. But you said you were wiser and stronger - that is very good. It is also very good to have you back.

It's a shame about the tough month but you seem to have taken something from it so that's good I guess. It's wonderful to have you back and I can now stop bugging you on twitter!

On twitter last week, I asked why you no longer blog, and you explained that you could never give up blogging. I knew u were not blogging cos I had been monitoring ur blog...

That's where the "mendacity" is coming from...no worries, though. I really was only pulling ur leg...;-)
