Summertime & The Living Gets Better

Summertime and the great outdoors are calling. So it is time for a seasonal announcement. To set the mood, here is something from the always fantastic Ella Fitzgerald.

For those of you who prefer something a bit more lively, here is the original Summertime Blues, performed by Eddie Cochran, from the beginnings of the rock ‘n roll era, which The Who made into a major hit in the 1960s.

Are you in the groove? 🙂 Here is my announcement.

As you know, I have been publishing this blog 5 days a week since it began last winter. Generally, I have devoted Saturdays to at least drafting the articles for the upcoming week. But the weather is changing and the outdoors and long weekends are calling, which means something has to give. Unfortunately, for those few of you who hang on my every word, what gives will be this blog. I plan to continue publishing but I am likely to miss a day or two or three now and then. So if you don’t find a post, don’t despair — it’s simply the call of the wild that is overwhelming me.

My summer starts tomorrow. There will be no article tomorrow. This weekend is the first of what I hope will be many long ones :).

I hope you will enjoy your summer and take some long weekends for yourself. Maybe at the end of the summer we can regale each other with stories of what we did for fun. Enjoy!



  1. Enjoy!

    (A lot of us will be out there with you!)

  2. I second the motion – enjoy! I plan to be out and about amongst the lilacs myself.

    Writing several posts ahead of time is an excellent idea, by the way. I just gave someone advice along those lines – prepare several posts, or at least several ideas, when the writing mood is alive and eager to take over, and it’s easier to keep the momentum going.
