Spent all last week working on April's Recycled Goods column. Still needs an editing pass, but should be posted sometime late this week. I managed to get far enough ahead that May's column is pretty much in the bag as well. It's been a slow, tedious, in the end agonizing week, as three weeks of monsoon finally broke in an explosion of toxic pollen. Spring is here, and suddenly the world is bright and green. Wish I could enjoy it more, but the accumulation of tasks to do, physical ailments, and sheer exhaustion is dragging me down. One casualty this week has been Jazz Prospecting. The week closed out with five records in the scratch file, but only one undoubtedly counts as jazz, and it doesn't have a final grade. So I figure I'll hold them back and at least have a start on next week. This looks like it's gonna be another rough one.
