I announced a few weeks ago that I would slow down the blogging because I am writing a new book.

You may have noticed that my resolve weakened.

But it was not just a matter of resolve.

In the next few weeks, I am wrapping up my lecture schedule, and not planning to accept new dates. It is hard to write when I don’t have solid and continuous blocks of time to do it. Blogging is easy. Writing a book is not.

Here is my schedule. I am speaking at the University of Washington in Seattle on April 4.

On April 11, I am speaking for the Lannan Foundation in Santa Fe along with teacher Jesse Hagopian (from Garfield High School in Seattle).

On April 18, I am speaking at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo (this is a makeup date for a lecture that was scheduled for early March, but canceled when a major snowstorm grounded all fights out of New York City).

That’s it. That’s when my slate goes blank, and I turn my full attention to the book.

Given my disposition and self-knowledge, I will still post something every day. But fewer and shorter entries. Don’t stop reading.
