As for myself: I have one more post in me on these matters, that is somewhat dying to come out…and, I’m not entirely sure it would be useful or not to write it at present.
As much as I love to write here, I’m almost thinking that perhaps taking up Sannion’s suggestion sooner–as in, during the next week and for the remainder of June (and possibly into July, too)–might not be a bad idea. My festival calendar for the remainder of this month, and all of next month, is pretty full, and includes some of my most favorite festivals (but then again, almost every month does), so that would be sort of sad not to share that with everyone…and yet, it would also be all the more time and effort I could put into actually celebrating those festivals, too.
[No, I'm not looking for people to go "No, don't go! We want to read you!" But, given that money is going to get even tighter in the next few weeks, and I could probably be spending my time on better and more productive things, perhaps it's just a good idea in general.]
