I am handling this pandemic by working on my craft. I have been wanting to focus more on learning piano and working on my voice. I was also supposed to start yoga teacher training last month. I started with a minimum of 15 mins a day of piano and yoga and that turned into a daily regime. I tried to do it all in the morning, but I’ve since been able to spread it out during the day and go to it as I feel drawn. I do personal mediation and journaling at least 30 minutes of yoga, at least 30 minutes of reading out loud (right now I am reading The Yoga Tradition and just finished Pussy, A Reclamation) while I use my vocal steamer to wake up my voice. I also do at least an hour of piano. Some of it is super tedious, slow, practice that I was unable to get myself to do prior as well as improvisation, technique, theory and playing my favorite songs. I try to get at least some these things done in the morning so that I can connect with myself before I connect with the rest of the world. I have also started dancing with myself more and really shaking my body loose and opening up my voice. I am really trying to do things that make me happy and feed my soul. I have still been performing. I do live streams of piano, uke and singing. I regularly attend open mics. I turned my bathtub into an ever changing art gallery and play in there. I made a Mermaid PSA with the first song I ever wrote, “One Day At A Time.”
My friends are still producing online events and asked me to be in them. I even led a global sing along with Daybreaker. I rewrote “Part of Your World” To fit the times. I call it “Quarantine World.”
I do dance livestreams with my friends’ music to encourage people to dance! I rereleased a song I wrote that really goes along with what its happening in the world right now, with everybody blaming everyone else. It’s called “Circle of Blame”
I am inspired to keep going, learning, creating and connecting. I can think of no excuse that is good enough not to. I have a song that I am currently working on to that I hope to finish soon. Maybe this will keep me accountable. Be on the lookout!! Stay sane everyone! (Donations appreciated!! Venmo: queenofloveandhope Paypal: www.paypal.me/queenofloveandhope)
