So long, farewell, auf weidersehen, good-bye
Yup, folks, this is it. I'm hanging up my calendar. It's been at least 15 years, maybe more. I've made new friends, kept in touch with old ones, evolved from e-mail to website to blog, danced a zillion miles, made discoveries, told some really bad jokes, mourned the loss of some of the greats.
Back in the day when I was working full time at a steady day job, this calendar could be created in "stolen" moments, spread out over the course of a week. Now that I'm semi-retired and have "more time" (???), I find that that the hours I'm not working at my day job are spent working at all the freelance things I do. And whatever the project du jour, it seems to eat into the time I could spend on this calendar. One week it might be theatre rehearsals, another week it's editing a doctoral dissertation, still another week it might be composing music on a deadline.
The bottom line is that I'm not finding the time to personally scout talent the way I once could; I'm not finding the time to do thorough searches to make this the comprehensive calendar it once was; and, of course, I'm not finding the time I need to actually write it.
This is it.
My swan song, as it were.
Thank you for your support, your comments, your feedback, and even your corrections through the years. It's been fun, and I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have.
