i know i’ve been noticeably absent…immediately after i graduated i was taken up with the task of preparing for my first academic conference as a speaker. two weeks ago, i gave a paper at the Britten in Context conference at Liverpool Hope University. this has become, already in such a short time, a momentous event in my life. as RG said to me, it’s great to have these experiences that remind us of the reasons that we do what we do.
maybe i’ll talk about the conference later, maybe not. right now, this is a good place to be.
