It’s been 2 months since the entire world was plunged into isolation. That means the vast majority of us, already unable to socialize, also have to go without music and culture.
ZOOM, Facebook, & Instagram has made live performances, DJ sets and even television shows possible to experience at home. What cannot be enjoyed via the latest app is the discovery of beauty during a walk. Or the feeling of dancing. One may watch the newest movie on demand, but many films are made for an audience larger than 5. I personally can’t wait until I can once again SEE a band perform or go into my favorite record shop.
You really do find out how essential culture and art is, when you find yourself without it. I will never take my life, filled with music and art, for granted ever again!
