Default Make Music!

In real life, I chair a small regional arts council. Here's what our artists are doing; it's something most people in campgrounds can, too:

With all venues shut down, we have to rely on ourselves for entertainment so sing from a ladder truck. Record yourself in the grocery store. Paint your RV black and chartreuse with white streaks. OK, maybe not that.

You're isolated? Your show is cancelled or postponed? You're bored? How about putting on a show?

Get the band together and video or livestream a rehearsal every day. Or set up your easel and video a painting coming together. Read a few pages from your novel or a short story or a poem, or your favorite kids book. Get in costume and video that play or the dance. Do some improv in your living room.

We're locked down, too, and missing you. You'll get in a session and we'll like seeing you. Please share your efforts with your local arts council, too. And if the artist has a donation button, the audience can express appreciation through PayPal, Venmo, or other services.

Cheers!

What's this "real life" you speak of.....

Our son-in-law makes his livelihood from music. All his venues are closed now so they have started an on line virtual gig. They have had good attendance and, so far no one's gotten a DUI.....
He has also moved his teaching on line.

Not only no DUIs but no one gets hit by a thrown beer bottle in a virtual show!

No lock down here in this State with a Republican governor that believes in FREEDOM, including passing no permit concealed carry of handguns.

Some of the towns mayors/politicians have taken it upon themselves to force, under penalty of law w/fines/jail, movie theaters, bars, casinos, schools, restaurants, events limited to 10 people, hair salons, barber shops, etc. Most national/state campgrounds also closed.

The main stream media has scared the be-jesus out of many to the point of self-incarceration and
if they were told to load into boxcars to be taken to a 'safe area', they would fight to get in first.

I do the same things I've always done with the exception of dining out in a restaurant cause they are closed. To early in the year to take the camper out as nights still drop into the teens/20's.

Please, let's not let this devolve into a a political argument. Lots of opinions on both sides and other forums are available for voicing opinions.

Here in Georgia our state parks are still open. We're considering a weekender for a break. Maybe somewhere close by here in north GA. The offices are closed but with the state park phone app we don't have to check-in and can see and pick out our site on line.
