The reality has really begun to set in for me that we are still in the early stages of the COVID-19 crisis here in the U.S. The idea that even the best guesses mean that we have longer to go under these present conditions than we have experienced so far. Temporary no longer seems like the right word, but this is temporary - just longer-term temporary.
One question on many of our minds is what will the world and our worlds look like at the end of this crisis. That things will change no longer seems the question but rather how will they change. In some ways, I can look upon this change as a good thing - although change - especially radical change - is by its nature frightening. I mean, we have been given this time, and it behooves us all to take the time for deep reflection of what is important and how we might live to best reflect our priorities. Being forced to slow down, to not go out has provided a clarity on somethings.
I already see myself considering things and deciding on some level that they aren't really that important to me, and on the other hand considering my past hesitation to step out boldly on other things - and wondering why I ever let fear stand in my way.
For now, E2TG is still important to me, and I hope it is to some of you. At the beginning of this year, I changed some things about E2TG to better utilize my time. Now, I have been given a chance to reflect upon those changes and see what is working and what isn't. So, expect more changes.
What will not change, for as long as I continue to write E2TG, is my commitment to featuring music that crosses genres with a focus on independent artists and bands. More to come, I am sure...
