STOP THE PRESSES

I have been having some sort of odd voice problems that make me more or less permanently hoarse.  After a course of an anti-fungal medication that does not seem to have corrected the problem, I am due to start voice therapy [not to be confused with psychoanalysis!] on January 8th.

It is possible that I shall have to postpone the recording of my lectures for a bit.  I hope not, but we shall see.  My plan had been to start the weekly lectures more or less when UNC starts its Spring semester, which is to say early in January.

Hmmm..."odd voice problems" from someone who is concerned (un-necessarily in my opinion)that facial ticks might mar the presentation. Calling Dr. Freud..!

Joking aside, I hope to be hearing you loud and clear in the New Year. I have been really looking forward to this. I think that it opens up all kinds of new possibilities for the blog.

Voice therapy! What does that entail? In any case, looking forward to the lectures (hoarse voice or not).

I haven't heard anymore about the audience problem; perhaps this delay, if it is such, will enable your blog readers to
crowd-source an audience. Surely your readership among faculty and students has contacts at the university there that could either attend and/or post flyers about the university. A call for attendees placed within the student newspaper? All of this reminds me of the time I passed up an opportunity to take a class with James Baldwin. Talk about regrets! This is a similar opportunity. The voice problem could be a reprieve. Let's make this happen.
