I write my blog posts well ahead of time, but I am skipping my usual post this Wednesday. No matter how the US elections turn out, it just doesn’t feel right to be business-as-usual.
Ironically, this whole blog has been business-as-usual. I have no idea if composers will ever make money, have opportunities for performances, or anything ever again. Even though Joe Biden is projected to win, it’s not like we will immediately cure COVID-19 and bring the economy back to how it was in, say, 1996.
We are in crazy times, and will remain in them for some time. I don’t expect a peaceful transition of power. I’m expecting Trump to whine, and his followers to get violent.
Wednesday I’ll be working from home. I hope everyone who ventures out will be safe.
