Shame on me for not reaching out sooner. I am so sorry. It just hit me this morning, while I've been in contact with all my music friends via other media sources I never reached out here on my blog. I apologize. I hope you well or on the way to better. We have all have been living through some frightening, uncertain, stressful, _________ (fill in the blank), challenging times.
Three months in, are we used to it yet? May we never get used to "it," rather learn to live, survive and prosper best we can. My prayers & condolences to all who have lost loved ones, those who have been sick, confined, out of work, struggling, angry, sad. I also express my great gratitude to those who have been working in stressful, front line positions. I thank You.
My means of coping has always come through music. When all my music venues closed for music I sure missed playing, I was especially missing the mutual healing that comes from music. Which in turn led me to sing daily for anyone who will listen, hoping to bring a smile, a small ray of sunshine of hope .... one song at a time. See the story below as I have been offering a daily LIVE at FIVE , Safe at Home daily song share via Facebook Live,weekdays. It has been a lot fun and apparently welcomed by those who are missing much, missing each other. A small daily connection. Joanne Lurgio Music Facebook
I have uploaded ALL the videos here on my website under the video tab & YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Today (May 22,2020) will be Safe at Home song share #53! WOW! That's a lot song shares!
I also wrote a new song, "Dare I Say (We're All in This Together) inspired by my own feelings during this pandemic, as well I recorded a Janis Ian song written for these times, "Better Times Will Come." Both can also be found on the video page. www.joannelurgio.com/video
Enjoy! Please share with your friends! Hopefully we will soon be on our way back to some form of normalcy as the nice weather finally arrives!
Stay safe. Be Well. Much Love & Gratitude xoxo
Safe at Home" Daily Song Share It started with a song on Facebook Live in solidarity with friends quarantined in Florence, Italy on March 13th. The great response made it obvious that we all needed a lift from the stress of the coronavirus. With that, I decided to do a daily Song Share. It has turned out to be a very fun and healing share. Sharing here for you to enjoy. They are in order from Song Share 1 ~ video quality DOES improve with every day, a learning experience! LOL .. ENJOY!!
