Taking a break

As I indicated previously, this was a long year, and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed.  So I’ve decided that I’m taking a break.

Not from teaching, although I have condensed my schedule significantly, and not from singing, although there won’t be that much of it during the summer.

I’ve decided that this summer is going to be spent getting some things together. I want to tweak my website, I want to organize my life a bit better, I’m planning some remodeling, and I’m having (joy of joys) eye surgeries in July.

I’m going to take a break from writing every Tuesday and Thursday, and just writing when I have something to say.

(Of course, I always seem to have something to say, but I don’t want to have to feel obligated to do it on particular days. I don’t want to think about SEO, or keywords, or anything besides what’s in front of me.)

I know that I will be writing about:

  • the upcoming house concert that I’m hosting for Emma Langford on August 12
  • the NATS 2022 Conference in Chicago, for which I am departing next Thursday
  • how excited I am about some new opportunities I am considering

And I’m sure that other things will come up. And maybe I’ll write more often than 2x/week if something tickles my fancy, or maybe I’ll skip a week here and there until the fall.
