In a moment of enthusiasm or weakness, I agreed to give a speech. The deadline is looming, and if I don’t set aside other things and prepare, a large roomful of listeners will be hearing me read my driver’s license. Blogging will have to slow for a while. As it turns out, this isn’t a bad time for reduced activity because the artsjournal.com publishing platform is on the verge of undergoing updating that will require pauses and delays. I’ll post when possible. Please stay tuned. If the speech turns out all right, I’ll share some of it with you. If it doesn’t, you’ll never hear about it again.
