New York, New York 🎶

Here’s a great tribute to New York City as it suffers through the coronavirus.

We are tough but we are tender, and we fucking love our city though it feels impossible sometimes.

Also, as a musician, it was encouraging to hear her say “This took me a whole day to learn.” 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hey y’all, Mozart’s is totally open. ☕️ You can pick up or even sit at the outdoor common-area tables, which are spaced 11 feet apart. They have Blacks BBQ for pickup too. Stay safe and support your local business if you can! @mozartscoffee #mozartscoffee #austin #texas #atx #coronavirus #pandemic via Instagram https://ift.tt/3blenYS

How the Virus Got Out

Here’s a pretty amazing visual story from the New York Times showing how the coronavirus started in a market in Wuhan and then spread around the world.

What I love about this article is the highly visual storytelling. It helps you understand how the virus spread around the world so much better than just a bunch of words.

Amazing work as always from the Times.

Stuff to Do While Stuck at Home

Isn’t it unbelievable that the whole world is staying home?

Here are 100 ways to entertain yourself while stuck at home due to the current (or any) pandemic.

👉 100 things to do while stuck inside due to a pandemic

My favorite? “Try moving in super-slow motion. It’s OK to laugh at regular speed.” Or a better yet, a slow-motion sword fight if you have a friend around. Sound effects are required. Cha cha cha cha. Cha cha cha cha.

Currently, my living room is cleared out for yoga and Wii.

I’d also recommend writing, making an app, playing card/board games, hanging some pictures, changing your guitar strings, doing your taxes, and getting out if possible to safely support your local taco truck or coffee shop. 😊

Or I guess just watch some movies.

Even my rock climbing gym has some movie and book recommendations. 🤷🏻‍♂️
