I can stream a concert to hundreds of people with less time, effort, and cost than traveling all day to play for ten… so, is the extra cost to play in-person worth it?

Absolutely. If I didn’t know it before, I know it now.

I’m glad we can stream when there is no other option. But sharing space—breathing the same air—with other human beings is a necessity. We need it. I need it. Art needs it. Life needs it.

Thank you, covid, for teaching me to more deeply value togethernesses.
