A quick personal note


Apologies for the light posting here lately. Nick has picked up some of my slack, thank goodness, but I try to do more and I haven’t.

I haven’t had a lot of time for reading and writing lately. Nothing bad’s going on. I’ve just been busy, although I should confess that some burnout is likely a factor. Anyone out there who has tried to blog regularly can understand, and that gets multiplied when you’re trying to maintain a website as big as this one is. (We are long overdue for some major back-end work, which is going to be a bitch.)

This past week has been particularly insane. It isn’t helping matters that the NBA playoffs are on during my limited free time and the Spurs are on a hot streak. I haven’t checked my e-mail in a week, although I hope to start getting caught up on that and start feeding the Twitter beast again over the long weekend. So apologies if you sent me a message. I will be in touch soon.

I’m going to have a long-overdue review of something that you’ll enjoy up later tonight or perhaps tomorrow, depending on how long it takes me to put the finishing touches on it. After that, there will probably be another hiatus.

The reason for the hiatus is good. I’m working on something really special but it’s going to take a lot of work on my part to get it done right. You’ll know it when you see it.

In the meantime, have a blessed Memorial Day. The ability to exercise our God-given right to freedom of speech, freedom to read, freedom to write, was paid for by the blood of men better than I. I hope you’ll join me in taking a few moments this weekend to remember them.
