The new normal

“Do or do not, there is no try”

Yoda

So I’m choosing to do instead.

This blog is now a music blog.

This second, stricter, lock down hasn’t done much for my photography. It’s super difficult to practice street photography. But this pandemic will come to pass and I’ll be able to go out and practice street photography again.

Until then this lock down is a line in the sand for this blog, I’m turning the attention of this blog from one art to another, from photography to music.

It would be easy to mourn pleasures lost (hopefully only temporarily) to the pandemic lock down(s). Instead I have found it useful to concentrate on what I can still do that brings me joy, which is listening to music. During lock down 2.0 I have been listening to, reading, and thinking more and even deeper about music than I did during pre-pandemic times.

For a long time I have wanted to write about music yet I have never done anything about it except think about doing it. Until now. This second lock down has been the kick in the pants that I have needed to start writing about music. Rather than starting a new music blog I have decided to take this blog in a new direction since music, like photography, is an art.

It’s going to be a musical variety blog.
