As I alluded to back in January, 2010 has been and will continue to be the most important year in my life ever. Not only have things been moving along swiftly with the planning of my July 2010 wedding to the most amazing and beautiful woman in the world, but I’ve also begun working on securing my alternative teaching certification so that I can re-enter the fantastically challenging, but rewarding world of education.
Thus, when I sat down to examine everything happening (including my ongoing participation in Prairie Cadets), I decided that it was time for me to put this blog on hiatus for several months. This will be the first time since August 2006, when I vainly attempted to start writing record reviews, that I’ve given myself any sort of break with maintaining an active web presence with this site. And I’m OK with that. I need this time away, as I have lots of things going on in life that are a bit more important than talking about the latest and greatest music with any sort of regularity.
I’m not shuttering the windows or anything like that – at least not yet. I still hope to emerge on occasion for the infrequent review or so when I feel like it. My plan is to make my way back to writing about music sometime in this autumn, when the Wedding Day hubbub has subsided and I’ve settled into a rhythm as a teacher. Until then, I welcome you to follow my micro-fiction series, If This Parking Lot Could Speak – a new story will go up most every Tuesday morning until the end of 2010.
It’s been a great ride, but it’s time for me to rest for a spell. Thanks to everyone who has written a guest review, commented, read a review, and given me any sort of constructive criticism on my path to being a decent writer. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve done here with Dryvetyme Onlyne, and I couldn’t have done it without you.
