Dear Readers,


I am set to launch a new blogsite with a friend and photographer, SL Levy, dedicated to profiles of Montreal performing and visual artists. Tales of Montreal is scheduled to launch on Monday, October 3, 2011. The first profile is on Jan Machalek, a painter originally from the Czech Republic, who has been residing in Montreal since 1988.

Sincerely,

Dear Readers,

I need to reduce the amount of posting, to no more than three each week. This is effective March 1.The reasons have everything to do with time and energy, both of which I have a diminishing quantity of in comparison to my youth.

I would like to devote more time to completing my novel, Dateline 2032: The Life of JAC03225, of which I have so far posted seven excerpts of the first chapter. This coming Sunday the 20th will mark the last excerpt posted. I expect to complete writing and editing the novel by August 2011.

After which I plan to look for a publisher, or perhaps publish it as an e-book. I shall give you more news about it when it is completed. I am not sure yet of the medium, so any advice from published authors or those knowledgeable about the publishing and books sector is most welcome.

So, yes, the blog posting will continue, albeit on a reduced scale. As always, feel free to comment or criticize what you read. It’s a necessary part of democracy, intellectual freedom, and individual dignity.

Sincerely,
Perry J Greenbaum

Dear Readers,

You will notice some changes to my blog, starting January 1, 2011. After four months, I have decided to bring some regularity to the blog's schedule. Here are the details:

Sunday: Fiction Sunday will start off with excerpts from my novel-in-progress, Dateline 2032: The Life of JAC03225.
Monday: Sports Monday will delve into Legends of Sport: A look at sports heroes of the past. I have started with Howie Morenz (hockey). The first sports legend of 2011 will be Jim Thorpe.

Tuesday:  Music Tuesday will focus on the Great Music Series, a view of Great Musical Performances and the Great Performers.

Wednesday: Science Wednesday: Great Scientific Advances. Each week, we will look at an important scientific discovery, one that markedly improved our physical well-being and made our lives better.

Thursday: Musical Clip

Friday: Social Friday: A Commentary on Social Issues.

Saturday: Musical Clip.
I hope and trust that you keep reading this blog. And, if you have any time or thoughts to share, please drop me a short note.

Sincerely,

Dear Readers,

There will be no blog postings the week of December 6-12. I have to attend to some personal matters, recharge my batteries and work on my novel. If all goes well, the blog postings will re-appear on Monday December 13th, 2010.

Sincerely,
PJG

Dear Readers,

I have started writing a story, a novel in progress, which I will start sharing with you, a few pages at a time, on January 1, 2011. The idea came about after a discussion with my friend, Sheldon, this weekend. It is another form of art, a creative effort. Needless to say, the novel will reflect similar ideas to my blog/essays/musical interests.
    Other than that I dare not say more.

Sincerely,
Perry J. Greenbaum
