Hope

Flutter Wheels, by Helen Costello

I gave mom a bunch of watercolor painting supplies for her birthday. She is happily teaching herself to work the new medium in bed with Daisy the dog.

My mother has the right idea.

While we are going through this crisis, the best way to stay safe is to stay home.

To encourage you all to stay home, all of the videos on my YouTube channel and all ten of my books will be freely available and demonetized as we work through these difficult times.

If you would like to support our work or schedule a lesson, visit https://www.patreon.com/Dobro33H.

If you can’t afford a lesson, just drop me a note. We can work something out.

In other news, Cochlear returned my bilateral BAHA sound processors and they still don’t work. I will fight with the company once life returns to normal, but until then I am back to being deaf. It sucks, but my problems are meaningless in the face of what some families are facing right now.

Make music. Be safe. Be strong. Be kind. We will prevail.

God bless each and every one of you.
