Dear loyal readers,

Over the past month, you have probably noticed that the NJ Arts Maven blog has been silent.

On February 16, your trusty culture maven had bilateral knee replacement surgery! That’s, right: I had both knees replaced.

What with intense physical therapy and rehabilitation, and an inability to focus after surgery/anesthesia, I was unable to post to the blog, despite my taking a laptop to rehab with the best intention of doing so.

Well, I am back at home and rarin’ to go. There are a ton of press releases in my inbox clamoring for publicity. I will go slowly at first, but hope to get back to reviewing by the middle of April, and posting at least 5 notices daily.

I hope you haven’t given up on this labor of love! Welcome back and come back soon—and often.
