As I type this, tens of thousands of people have contracted COVID-19, the coronavirus, and literally millions are in some state of ‘shelter in place’ or full on quarantine in their homes.
I am joining the many many artists of every stripe – audio, video, visual – who are reaching out to those who are hurting, those who are isolated, those who need distraction, those who need comfort…simply by doing what I do best; my work, my art.
So I have revived my ‘informal reading of my favorite works’ podcast, focusing on pieces with humor, kindness, deep feeling, and lighthearted joy. These recordings will be even more informal than the original set – because I would like to focus my time on creating the audio, rather than editing it. So there will be some flubs, much laughing, and talking to you rather than only talking about the story.
May it give some comfort, some ease, some faith there is goodness in the world.
Everyone, take care of eachother…
