“We’ve got provisions, and lots of beer…the key word is survival on the new frontier.” – Donald Fagen
Is this the new “temporary normal”? The last two weeks don’t seem real…I look out the window and it looks like an ordinary day. Then I look at the news, and I feel like it’s a science fiction movie. I think about the people who have died from this virus, and it’s heartbreaking….
Now is the time to BE KIND…look out for your friends, look out for your families, reach out to ANYONE you know is in need…bottom line, let’s all do things to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
This is brand new territory – we’re hoping things will improve dramatically in the next 15 days, and although there’s no certainty, it’s all the more reason to stay positive. Use the time to reconnect with people, to try a new project, or just pause and reflect. There are friends who are worried about their next paycheck right now, and they need to know that people are there for them, even if it’s just moral support. There are those who are home alone right now, and could use the sound of a friendly voice, letting them know that you care.
I’m makes me very happy to see how music has been such a positive force during these trying times….from celebrities doing live concerts online, to kids playing music on their porch to entertain their neighbors, you can never underestimate the power of music. I’m even thinking of doing something online, as like many of my musician friends, we don’t know when our next gig will be. We’ve gotta keep moving forward, sticking together, and making changes to better the lives of others.
This is how we’ll survive the new frontier.
