Steps . . .



A house isn't always a home.
Being lonely isn't being alone.
Heroes save other ones in distress.
Some in charge end up making a mess.

Though desire directs us to explore,
Prudence sometimes instructs to ignore.
Fact continue to flow and to ebb.
Use the knowledge to choose the right step.



New performance  of an older composition Steps
Recorded March 31, 2020 while sheltering-in-place

Fine . . .

. . . tuning

Practice makes perfect.
Perfection is rare.
Some think they've seen it
When it really isn't there.

I'm not a perfectionist,
But she with whom I'm communing
Doesn't see that this obsession
Is only fine tuning.

Broken

Mother Chi . . .



Like memories, pictures and even sometimes smells,
Emotions evoked by music can explode.
The sources of inspiration are evasive for certain.
For this, it came from a thing called Chicago.

Choice . . .



I perceived the clarinet sample in the program I used to create Incidentally Broken did not have sufficient dynamics to approximate a bass clarinet when played in the lower register. I believe the bassoon sample (utilized in this mix) is more fitting and blends nicer with the remaining instrumentation.

Here. . . give a listen . . .

Constructive . . .


. . . use of time . . .


. . . Damn the coffee.
Damn the sugar.
Damn the colonies.
Where's my future?
What awaits me?
I don't want to be
Napoleon of broken dreams . . .

Review . . .


. . . the facts . . . 



(from https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-fire-pandemic-team/)
". . . a series of cost-cutting decisions made by the Trump administration in preceding years that had gutted the nation’s infectious disease defense infrastructure. The “pandemic response team” firing claim referred to news accounts from Spring 2018 reporting that White House officials tasked with directing a national response to a pandemic had been ousted. . . Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer abruptly departed from his post leading the global health security team on the National Security Council in May 2018 amid a reorganization of the council by then-National Security Advisor John Bolton, and Ziemer’s team was disbanded. Tom Bossert, whom the Washington Post reported “had called for a comprehensive biodefense strategy against pandemics and biological attacks,” had been fired one month prior. . . It’s thus true that the Trump administration axed the executive branch team responsible for coordinating a response to a pandemic and did not replace it, eliminating Ziemer’s position and reassigning others, although Bolton was the executive at the top of the National Security Council chain of command at the time. . ."

Whaaaat???!!!. . .




(from https://larrybrownsports.com/baseball/donald-trump-consulted-a-rod-j-lo-coronavirus-alex-rodriguez/543967)
". . . ABC’s Katherine Faulders and John Santucci reported on Friday night that the president sought advice from Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez regarding the coronavirus. . . That seems like a bizarre place for the president to go in his conversations, but he’s a sports fan and also said he had spoken with Tom Brady recently. . . What do you think Rodriguez and Lopez told him? Maybe they advised him on virus-spreading models, the potential GDP impact, and the best use of congressional stimulus funds. . ."
