An update

Since I've been getting a few emails of late about the podcast, I thought I would go ahead and post a short update here for anyone who stumbles by. As you can see, I didn't get around to starting the podcast back up in the fall, and now I'm just not sure when it will be. There are a lot of things competing for my time these days. But, with the big 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's accession to the throne in 2009, I feel that I have to do something with the podcast in the months to come, so keep checking back or stay subscribed. :)

In the meantime, I'm still updating things on the website here and there and actively updating and moderating both of the blogs on the site - the main News blog and the Tudor Q&A blog.

Podcast on hold for a while

Hello all! Due to the upcoming sale of our house and move (back in to Austin proper - we're out in a rural area near Elgin right now) my weekends are going to be completely eaten up soon. So, I've decided to put the podcast on hiatus for the summer. We're hoping to take a vacation to Maine again this year too, so I'll probably just aim to start back up in September or October. This will also give me a little time to think some more about a few format changes that I've been considering. And this will allow me to finally get on a schedule to put the podcast out at the beginning of a month instead of the end! :)

I apologize to all the folks who have emailed me telling me how much they look forward to the podcast every month since they're going to have a bit of a wait for the next one now! But I'll still be updating the website and news blog as time allows, so you can still get your "Tudor fix".

Until the fall, fare thee well!

Lyrics to "Come Again, Sweet Love Doth Now Invite”

Come again,
sweet love doth now invite,
thy graces that refrain
to do me due delight.
To see, to hear,
to touch, to kiss,
to die with thee again
in sweetest sympathy

Come again,
that I may cease to mourn
through thy unkind disdain
for now left and forlorn.
I sit, I sigh,
I weep, I faint,
I die, in deadly pain
and endless misery

Gentle love,
draw forth thy wounding dart:
Thou canst not pierce her heart;
For I that do approve.
By sighs an d tears
more hot than are
thy shafts, did tempt while she
for scanty tryumphs laughs
