Q13 FOX in Seattle Covers Pedestrian Serenades

I have been performing live from my front porch to entertain those who are out and about walking through the neighborhood. Response has been amazing and word is spreading like wildfire. This is not intended to be a concert for people to gather, but there is space for pedestrians to pause a while and keep a safe distance from each other. There is even room for Glenn Hummel to set up his drums on occasion.

I heard about people putting Teddy Bears in their windows, but as I walked through my neighborhood, I thought about how people who are blind like me can’t see them. So I wondered what kind of audio encouragement could be given to help relieve some of the effects of isolation. Why not play my piano on my porch? I had already started doing live Facebook shows from my living room every Saturday night. The weather got nice, so the next logical step was to do something outside.

I firmly believe that it is not “social distancing” we need, but “physical distancing”. We need “social closeness” where we stay in touch and communicate with each other more than ever, whether outside across the lawn or calling those who are isolating alone and having a nice conversation and see how they are doing. We all have an effect on each other. We just need to decide what kind of effect we have.

Staying Home In Tacoma SHOW Live on FB

I am continuing my Staying Home In Tacoma SHOW every Saturday night. Join me LIVE on Facebook starting at 6PM Pacific time (west coast) which is 9PM Eastern time (for my PA friends). Get in on the conversation and make requests; that is what drives the show. Some folks have also been hosting “Watch Parties” where they have their own circle of friends in a comment thread. This has proven to be a wonderful way for me to connect with family and friends back east, but I am receiving feedback from several people who are isolated due to disability or other reasons and I am told it is making a big difference for them. It sure seems like a win-win because I love to share music and others are enjoying it.

This amazing story began with an invitation to go to the beach. My great friend and sax player Glenn Hofmann asked me if I wanted to go to Long Beach Island at the end of July. I would stay with the neighbors, cialis canada look Sandy and Frank Smith. There was a hitch. He could not get me home in time for my weekend gigs. Being blind and unable to drive, transportation is always an issue for me. So, the plan we chose was for Frank to drive me to Absecon, NJ and take the NJ Transit train to Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station. There I would need to make the connection to the Septa line that runs to Lansdale. From there, my wife would pick me up at the station. This was the first time I ever rode a train myself, and the first time I was on this sort of train since I was 13 and going to Wills Eye Hospital to be diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). I wasn’t sure how I was going to switch trains, but I trusted in the assistannts (redcaps) and the goodness of mankind. A gentleman helped me at the station to get to the Septa line where a very nice lady was waiting for the Lansdale train as well. She agreed to help me. Her name is Alison. As we rode the train, I learned that Dr. Alison Paster is the Director of Fashion at the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

As we chatted about her work at the school and my music, as well as our families, she began to share the tragic story of a recent graduate of the Art Institute. Laura Araujo, 23, was robbed and murdered in Philadelphia in July. She had been quite a young lady. She had been President of the Fashion Network Club at the school, worked with Oscar de LaRenta in New York for fashion week, and interned at Philadelphia Style Magazine. There was going to be a memorial service at the Art Institue in September. As we discussed all of this, we began to realize that I might be able to help with the service.

The service was planned for September 9, 2014 and I was going to play special music as well as prelude music and Glenn was to accompany me. As I tried to discover songs that were appropriate, a few came close, though not quite perfect. These included: “Candle in the Wind”, “Tears in Heaven”, “Lullaby (Goodnight My Angel)”, among others. As I learned more about Laura and her family, I began to feel that a new song would be the best. So I wrote “For Just a Little While (Laura’s Song)”. Glenn and I hit the studio to record it five days before the service

Glenn’s wife Debbie also transcribed the music and we signed and presented this handwritten copy of sheet music to the family as well.

The service was beautiful with many people sharing stories, poems, and songs. Dave Roberts from 6ABC News also spoke and brought a message from the Mayor. The event was covered by 6ABC News and aired at 11:00 that night.

It was quite an amazing journey with a roller coaster of emotions. In the wake of this tragedy, several new friendships were formed, Glenn and I were able to share our gifts of music for others, and hopefully a family will find peace and comfort as they move forward, never forgetting Laura, but cherishing the time they had together. All of this for me started with an invitation to the beach.
