As our pandemic grinds on, life adapts. I hope you're all staying safe and doing as well as possible.

This improvisation has a feeling of connection that carries through it--from the day itself, and from the people listening to the live stream. I didn't have to search for the music--throughout, it continued to suggest itself, and by the time I thought about how things were going, it was near the end of the time slot. This is definitely more of a channeling performance than a struggling one.

It's great to have people listening, and I hope this week rewards you in return for your attention. Thank you for listening!
