A Coronavirus Music Parody – It’s So Wonderful to Roam

We’ve been getting mixed messages from Trump – but here in Michigan, as well as many parts of the country, our governor has directed us to self-isolate – to stay at home unless you need to get groceries, medicine or medical assistance. If you are self-isolating like me, you find yourself with lots of time on your hands. What can you do that’s constructive? What can you do that’s fun? What can you do to keep up with what’s going on with COVID – 19 and how it impacts you and the rest of the country?

My answer to those questions is addressed in this new coronavirus parody based on There is Nothing Like A Dame from the musical, South Pacific with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein.

A Coronavirus Parody – It’s So Wonderful to Roam

In this world where almost everything has been put on hold, I create new routines for myself. A forty-minute walk every day does not replace a workout at the gym, but it helps. Getting out the sewing machine and making face masks for all the family is not my most favorite pastime but it made me feel good to be helping keep my loved ones safe. Creating the video featured in this post was a creative outlet for me to share ideas and connect with others on issues we are all dealing with. I hope it puts a smile on your face and if only momentarily diverts your attention from the seriousness of the current pandemic.

I go to the opera every night. The Metropolitan Opera is streaming a different Grand Opera every night – which is right up my alley. The National Theatre is streaming a wonderful play every Thursday evening. Check out the CNN link below for all sorts of online resources for cultural activities and entertainment.

Please consider using some of this time to work for your favorite candidates in the upcoming election. Above all, stay safe.
