I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to find the joy in music today: sing, play, dance, or listen.
I also play. I sometimes have a guitar at my desk, and I work through different songs. It’s been a long time that I barely played, but this year I’ve rediscovered this, and especially during the pandemic. I find myself sitting outside in the evening after work in laying in bed and just strumming some songs.
I follow Marty Music, and try to learn from him. Lately, I’ve been working on a bunch of Beatles songs, just enjoying playing them and getting family to sing along. A few I’ve gotten passable in the last few months:
- While My Guitar Gently Weeps
- Norwegian Wood
- In My Life
Still struggling with Dear Prudence, as my fingers are apparently not as long as George Harrisons. My middle son has much better luck with that one.
