Announcement Of Site Suspension
COVID 19 Can Go To Hell
As of September, 2020, John McFerrin's Reviews Of Music is going on indefinite hiatus. For reasons that I need not elaborate upon here, circumstances related to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic have impacted my schedule and my routine in such a way that has made it increasingly difficult for me to put in the necessary time and energy for my site contributions to live up to the standards that I try to set for myself. While neither I nor anybody in my immediate circle is sick, I am nonetheless drained, and until things return somewhat to normal I expect that I will remain so. I do not plan for this suspension to mark the permanent end of new contributions to my site, but neither can I make plans at the present time for when I will resume.
I would note that, while I am suspending my work on this site, my work for the Discord & Rhyme podcast will continue as normal. The podcast takes up significantly less of my time and energy, in terms of listening and preparation and mental energy, than does this site, and I should be able to continue to appear on the podcast at regular intervals.
