"I am excited to see what 2020 will bring."
This is what I said in January, not anticipating what 2020 would actually bring all of us. Heartache, loss of life and jobs, an uncertain future, a global pandemic, social unrest and so much more. It's hard some days to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it is coming!
I have had the great fortune of staying busy during this time with teaching, and being the Director of Music at University United Methodist Church and performing virtually. I have acquired new computer skills that I never thought I would ever have to learn, but we must adjust and adapt to our new way of life. On Oct.3, I sang at my first public Covid performance and it was fabulous, just to be able to sing full voice and outside to people is beyond description. We all wore our masks, but I didn't care, I was singing!!! Grateful. In August, I was very busy with "19" the Musical, doing ZOOM interviews promoting and celebrating the 100 yr anniversary of the 19th Amendment, with Morgan Stanley and the National Archives. I am even recording music for a new musical, When We Get There, by Charlie Barnett, and we went into the studio to do some of it.
So there has been a lot of good that has come out of this time of "pause". Now it's time to reset and get ready for when the world opens up again, because when it does, I plan on being out there singing my heart out, and being grateful for every minute of it!!
