What have I been up to while away from the blog?
I read a great biography of Beatrix Potter by Margaret Lane.
I thought a lot about how we write and film thrillers, including Susanna Moore's controversial In the Cut (which as later made into an under-appcreciated movie starring Meg Ryan).
I watched the Great British Baking Show.
I refreshed the look of the blog and my twitter profile.
In short, I kept busy.
For 2016, I'm adjusting the blog's focus. I will still write about music and books, but I want to concentrate on writing more thoughtful essays, rather than posting a mass of less complete work.
Stay tuned, dear reader, and I look forward to celebrating a new year of books and music with you!
