6 May

It all started because I was sick and tired of hearing words like mischaracterization, and collusion, and all the words that rhyme with it – contusion, infusion, diffusion, transfusion, confusion, etc. Enough! So I devised a care package, two-hours of songs with a word that seems to fallen out of favor in our vocabulary these days: care.
