Happy New Year!
I find myself circling back to my blog (FINALLY) after taking the long 3 year break humanity is calling the pandemic. 2020-2023 was transformative in many ways, and I am thankful that I prioritized family and personal growth during that time when so many of us felt alone and isolated.
As I find myself dusting off the webpages, blogs, and research notes of "the before times," I am looking forward to the possibilities that 2024 may hold. So far on my radar is a re-release of my book, Dr. Widow (which as an update from my last post here DID in fact get written in 2020). I am building a white paper with a colleague about equitable pay in the arts. Moreover, I will be launching a taiko school (traditional Japanese drumming) later this fall.
The lessons I have learned these past few years are those of perseverance, optimism, and hope. I truly do hope the I learn something new everyday and that what I learn can be taught to others. How is your year so far?
