Musicians Move Us, How Fragile We Are, We Wear the Mask
Good Morning from Prince Edward Island,
Leaving the house and heading for a walk with Millie this past Thursday morning, I managed to capture this phone photo.
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, the day will be gone forever; in its place is something you left behind. Let it be something good. ~ anonymous
With the sun rising earlier every day and going down later every evening, lots happening on Prince Edward Island. The Island is showing off its many shades of green, the national parks have their annual passes on for half price, and the campgrounds are opening up. Staycation planning is underway, and summer is almost here.

Last night a friend sent a music video that inspired me to write about artists, especially musicians. Thank you, John.
This pandemic is wreaking havoc on those thousands of musicians. They make their living from pouring their passion into not their art, but they also entertain us, educate us, and inspire us. My heart goes out to them and their families today.
Here are two organizations set up to help musicians and their families.
Unison Benevolent Fund a non-profit organization, provides counselling, emergency relief, and benefit programs for those in the Canadian music community who face personal or professional challenges due to hardship, illness, unemployment or economic difficulties.
Bob Dylan Murder Most Foul Lyric Video. This comment by Gene Miller says it well. Absolutely genius. Only Dylan could make a 17-minute song about Kennedy's death using the starkest of words and melody.
Life is Poetry.
"There is no poet, black or nonblack, who measures his achievement," she declared. "Even today. He wanted to be a writer and he wrote." ~ Nikki Giovanni, speaking of Paul Laurence Dunbar
