FAMILY MUSIC 101

Hello friends – here is a link to FAMILY MUSIC. I am trying something new – I have made a recording of FAMILY MUSIC so that you can join me at your convenience. You can stop and start, repeat bits, skip over bits – it’s all in your hands. I hope you and your little ones enjoy it and will visit again for more episodes. (This episode is not perfect – I will get better as I do it more.)

I use sticks, something I will do often. Mine are about 7 inches long and about 3/4 inch diameter. It is easy to make some from a dowel. They are the absolute best instrument you can give to a young child. Otherwise, a couple of wooden spoons work, or you can clap ot tap your knees instead of using tapping sticks.

 

 

 

TRUTH

TRUTH

Whoever would have thought, at the beginning of the pandemic, that our reactions to science would become politically motivated? That “truth” becomes merely an opinion. In the early days, not much was known about this coronavirus and we were told wearing masks would not be helpful. Indeed we should not wear masks and allow medical professionals access to the needed N95 masks. As scientists learned more we were asked to wear masks in stores and outside when we could not socially distance at least 6 feet. Many people decided that this was an infringement on their civil liberty and no one was going to tell them to wear a mask. They would simply not do it. They invented their own truth, ignoring science. You could see how, generally speaking, the mask-wearers tended to be democratic, and anti-maskers republican. How could this be? Surely scientists have a wide variety of political views. The request to wear masks was not political, but somehow became so. Science is truth.
