Because of circumstances outside my control, I regret to tell you that I must close down English Muse. I want to thank you for all your love and support over the past three years, especially last year after the death of my father.
I’m going to keep my RSS feed open, so please save it on your reader. (Or friend me on facebook.) Maybe someday I can start blogging again.

I am so sorry.
