HITS Daily Double

I’ve been staring at a blank screen all morning trying to think of how to start this. Well, here is where I sit. I have worked from home for some time, so that’s not new. What is new, though, are all of the conversations—yes conversations! I have spoken to more people for longer periods of time in the past 10 days—on the phone, Zoom and Face Time—than I have in a quite a while. They always start with family, health and new work environments before business. While the conversations are different, we all need a bit of “normal,” whatever that is at the moment, but we need to talk music to feel normal because it’s what we do!! I wish all of you health and that our families stay well, but I think we’re all looking for what’s next… so while we struggle with where the line is, we talk about health, family, our emotions, and we talk MUSIC!
