Apologies for the lack of blogging. The semester was a punishing one (papers, performances), and the END of said semester even more punishing, in terms of grading and so on. Since then, I’ve been doing program notes for a couple of summer concerts, and indexing my book manuscript. It was my first major indexing project—I used the MS Word indexing function—so there was a learning curve, do-overs etc. involved, and thus a hell of a lot of time. But when I get the proofs, most of the work will be done. High time!
So I’ve forced myself not to respond to comments, critical and supportive alike, and I’ve not picked up on other matters that I would in other circumstances have run publicly amok about, like a certain idiotic piece in the New York Times by Mark C. Taylor. Simply no time. And we’re off to Hawaii tomorrow (tomorrow being our 25th wedding anniversary, as it happens), to return around the first of June, and I have errands to run…
So I’ll be back in a couple of weeks. Stay cool, everyone.
