Strange times we’re living in. As I grapple with the impact this pandemic is having on my business and particularly on my ability to do the things I love to do, I try to maintain some perspective. Entertaining folks is very important all of the time but now more than ever. However, there are health care professionals putting their lives on the line every day and there are people who face financial ruin because of this situation so when I feel a bit put upon, I take a reality check. My struggles are not insignificant but they are far less than those of many folks. I DO miss performing for live audiences though and I’m trying to follow the best scientific (and NON-political) information out there regarding the safest ways to get back to live performances. Dealing with this world-wide catastrophe is going to take a lot more time than any of us would prefer but that’s the hand we’ve been dealt right now. I’ll continue to do on-line performances and make my books and music available to people with the hope that this will lighten their load a bit. I can only make a small contribution in this regard but if I don’t make it, I will not have carried my share of the load. One thing this situation has made me profoundly aware of is how many people there are out there that mean a great deal to me. I hope you all take care and stay safe.
