Signing Off

The last mp3s finally in place, it’s time to hang up the blogging spurs for the summer. I hate to sound like a Kafkaesque bureaucrat while colleagues’ toes are warmed by European sands, but I couldn’t help noticing something interesting in the stats. Had I been asked at the start of the year to predict which pupils would have clocked up the most recordings, with the least fuss, my predictions might have been well out. And that’s because the under-rated quality of quiet persistence tends to be overlooked in the day-to-day – yet it gets the job done. Wasn’t it Thomas Edison who described genius as “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration?”

Thanks to everyone who has looked in and commented over course of the year and also to those whose blogs have inspired, interested and entertained.

 Have a great summer.
