Hi everyone. Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing. But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Forty years ago on September 1, 1981 Daryl Hall and John Oates released their tenth album, Private Eyes. The title track was the first single and today’s song was the second, released two months later. It hit the #1 spot in the country for one week on January 30, 1982 and it is one of my all time favorites by this incredible duo.
“Easy, ready, willing, overtime
Where does it stop
Where do you dare me
To draw the line“.
