Sorry I’ve been absent from the blog so much and missing all your posts. I’m still alive and hope to be back soon. I hope you’re all doing well!
Yesterday, I read a poll indicating that only 52% of Americans are following news closely on the war in Ukraine. It’s interesting because I’m reminded once again of how Americans always seem to be split down the middle with everything.
I’m not getting into a long, ranting post about my thoughts on this war in Ukraine. Instead, here’s a song I’ve shared in the past. Recently, someone put together a new video for it on YouTube. This video shares images of the war in Ukraine. *viewer discretion*

The music video provides a view of the world during the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine.Continue reading “Music Monday: Nathaniel Rateliff “Time Stands” #Music #Musicmonday #NathanielRateliff #AndItsStillAlright”
