Back in the loop

I have completed my thesis - almost. I still have a few images to scan and my last meeting with my advisor (Monday), but its written, I have made my conclusive remarks and I am beat! It has been some long months, where I have been working day and night (so it feels) writing this thesis. It is being delivered Tuesday June 2 at 12.00 and then I have to wait two months to get the result, but right now I don't give a damn about the result, I just want to get it over and done with ;o)

I shall spare you the details, but my subject has been a certain genre of mummy portraits from the Roman period (circa 30 BCE - AD 400) in Egypt. You probably know those portraits from museums around the world - they are painted in this style:



One of these days I shall be happy to talk more about these portraits, but not now ;o) I have set up an Egyptology blog for those kinds of things, but also more about that later.
Right now I am dying to get back into the loop and will begin this evening by visiting blogs. And I can barely wait!
I want to thank all of you who has been commenting here while I've been gone. I really appreciate it and will visit all of you over the next days. Cannot wait to see what is going on in the book-blogger world. I have missed you all!

I'm sure all of your hard work will pay off. :) Meanwhile, it sounds as though you've earned a long rest from academics and writing. I can't wait to hear more about what you choose to read.
