PLAYLIST FOR “IT’S THAT TIME!” (11.6.21)

8 Nov

Something unusual and special happened this weekend. No, my show wasn’t organized and coherent. I said, unusual and special, I didn’t say anything about a miracle. If you’ve been examining or reexamining your life, you’ve probably thought. “Wouldn’t it be great if I could turn back the clock?” Well, this was  your night! The end of Daylight Saving Time.  Time to Fall behind and turn the clocks back an hour. So as what I’m calling a public service, I offered some reminders about turning back the clocks and a few suggestions for what to do with that extra hour. So what I’m calling a good time was had by all.

PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO UNCERTAINTY” (3.6.21)

7 Mar

                                                                                                                                                                    Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken” 

                                                                                                                                                                   Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, 

                                                                                                                                                                   And sorry I could not travel both

                                                                                                                                                                   And be one traveler, long I stood

                                                                                                                                                                  And looked down one as far as I could. 

Okay, everyone finds this poem iconic and inspiring. Really? Do you know where these roads go? I don’t. Do you know if there are bears or poison ivy or rest stops? I don’t. So how can you be so certain you’re making a good decision and not a bad mistake? You can’t! You can’t be certain and that’s about the only thing you can be certain of. Especially when I spent two hours presenting A Musical Tribute To Uncertainty. (Did everyone love it? Well, I’m not entirely certain about that…)
