Losing My Religion. This song feels like it makes so much sense today.
So much love everyone. Sending good vibes. Really.
This is one of the ways we are practicing self-care, and just doing what we do.
Up until a few days ago, music was pretty much all I could do. Even though I have a bunch of healthy stuff in my “toolbox” – I was in a state of paralysis. I’m finding that it takes me about three or four times as long to do regular things and I need a lot of sleep (and up until a few days ago, I could barely sleep because I could not quiet intrusive thoughts).
Things that are helping/soothing/comforting:
– getting out in the sun
– staying warm
– eating greens, cooked
– drinking lots of water and tea
– getting outside and exercising
– being part of a group of reiki practitioners who have been sending reiki to people on a covid-19 list (this has been helping me a lot)
– limiting news to ten minutes a day
Lots and lots of love and gratitude – Holly (and Pauly)

Paul and I have no idea when our next gig is – all gigs have been canceled. We make our living through gigs. We will continue to play no matter what. If you enjoy our playing, consider buying us a coffee (see links below) or sending a tip through venmo or paypal.
Also, sharing the video, liking, commenting – it all helps. ❤
