You may have noticed a recent silence here in this space. It’s only temporary!
I’m surfacing briefly from the mountain of papers engulfing me to explain. I’m on the board of directors of our regional performing arts festival, and it’s entry deadline time and as I’m festival registrar (hat#1) I’m industriously entering the hundreds of registrations into the main database, and making sure the money matches up.
Then, after I pass over the piano, vocal, choral, and speech arts registrations to their respective directors I don hat#2, and get to work on the dance discipline schedule – 600+ entries shoehorned into 3 days. I may be quite silent on the blog front for a few more days, though my intentions were not to get derailed. No hope!
Fun job, though, if a bit intensive. Like a huge logic puzzle, trying to fit everyone in where they belong. This is year number ??? of doing this – a long time – and I love it, though I’m getting a bit jaded already and I’m nowhere near finished. At least another week will be dedicated to the project at hand, but I hope to sneak a few book-related posts in, too.
Finally started on the Canada Reads 2013 titles, and finding them pretty darned good.
