From the Editor
Are the emotional stages of quarantine the same or different than grief?  I can’t tell for sure – but trying to summarize the national mood it seems like it was first denial, followed by fear, followed by potential/creativity, and now boredom? 

In that vein, there are a few incredibly well done originals commenting on life at home.
  • Hello (from the Inside) an Adele Parody – hat tip to my wife for finding this gem –
  • “Bored in the House” – When a TikTok video is picked up by rapper Tyga and blended with another beat maker – you get a new hip-hop song (and video!) that encapsulates the current climate well.  Please note – language here is definitely R rated.
Of course, our thoughts and prayers remain with those suffering during this time.
All the best,
