It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home.

Despite the lack in definition, just to the right (my left), was a leg-shaking steep towering cliff that still gives me nightmares… Wadi Rum, Jordan. Comfort zone crushed!

It’s been a while. 160 days or so and the whole world has shed its skin time and time again in the act of revisions and the hopscotch roll of write–edit–delete–write–edit–write–write–write! On and on so that even the thought of blogging became daunting. So I took a break from the world to focus on my memoir (In Another Country) and search for an agent. In that silence I began yet another book (we’ll save that for another time). All the while I had enlisted a local artist to engineer a new website. One that would be a portfolio of past writings as well as a space to promote artwork, recipes and even a little ecommerce. And, here we are! I’m extremely pleased to welcome you to the new nicholasandriani.com

Rebranding.
Rebranding.

So welcome back those of you who have shared this journey with me since the beginning. And to those of you who haven’t, please be sure to introduce yourself. This site has always been a place for sharing my search for the truth–for that which is tangible and pure and raw in this world, as savage as it may be. Our goal remains the same–to explore the globe with all its quirks and idiosyncrasies–highlighting cultures, histories, food, life stories, revolutions and life on the road. Our goal is to live life, passionately explored.

p.s. I would love some feedback regarding our new site. Do you find it functional? Clear? Outstanding?!

  1. Even though I am logged into Word Press, I can’t comment on your blog post without logging in. So I attempted to log in, but Word Press insists that I don’t know my proper password, with multiple attempts. This may be a glitch in the website, or it may be my own issue this morning, but I thought I’d give you a heads up. glad to see you’re back and most importantly, that you’ve been writing all this time.
