A brief winter hiatus.

winter scene in brooklyn by francis guy

In surveying all the myriad things I have to do (and want to do) this week, academic, job-related, writing-related and personal, I have come to the conclusion that it’s probably better to take a short hiatus from this blog for a couple of days. I’m not entirely certain when I’ll resume posting on a normal schedule, though it could be after the coming weekend (January 29-31, 2016). The good news is that one of the things I’ll be working on is a potential new project that I may showcase on this blog if and when it gets going.

Have a great week, stay warm, and good luck to those of you still digging out from Winter Storm Jonas.

If you’re curious about the header image, it’s Winter Scene in Brooklyn by English-American landscape painter Francis Guy, painted sometime between 1817 and 1820. As you may know, my academic project called Ten Years of Winter deals with exactly that time period, the 1810s, and I thought it was an appropriately wintry scene.
