Lest anyone think I’ve gone terminally silent as I haven’t posted for nearly a month, fear not-I can offer a legitimate explanation for the vacuum. I have been on an extensive trip back to the States, visiting family and friends which has unfortunately severely curtailed the availability of time to devote to writing. I will be properly and regularly back on duty in early June. For the moment, I have been fiercely (some may say overzealously) Instagramming images of particular note amidst my travels on the tomoutblog Instagram account. Some may find their way into future posts once I pore through all the material and reflect on what may be of greatest cultural interest. Thanks!
