2020: Chapter Four

Tonight’s sleeplessness isn’t as bad as the other nights.  Some of the other Diggers found the right equipment and are entertaining themselves (and the rest of us) with song.  It reminds me of that old percussion team that would use trash cans, steel drums, brooms and whatever else they were able to find, mix it with their precision rhythm and entertain.

It’s not the greatest performance.  But it is a WONDERFUL distraction from the world that has crashed down upon us.  And for that brief moment in time, we are not mining though a landfill.  We are not treating each other like the enemy.  Everyone is family when cloaked by the power of music.

It’s the one thing that can still bring us together.  As they used to say, “Music tames the wild beast”.  Too bad it will have to end sometime.
