The last day of summer, September 21, 2020, was a beautiful day here in Michigan. The sun shone brightly. I was out in the sun over the lunch hour with one of my daughters and one of her friends. We talked about the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, what the current political scene foreshadowed, how the vegan challah bread I had made (no eggs) and brought over almost tasted like the real thing and numerous other subjects. We had a lovely visit.
And then I returned home to discover the one novelty song in 2020 The Musical was about to hit the 10,000 view mark on YouTube. Would it happen today or tomorrow? Would it feel really exciting or just like hitting any other mark?
Yes. Happy Birthday Baby crossed the 10,000 view level today. It did not feel like a fireworks display. But it has been very satisfying over time to receive many positive comments from those who have seen it. It feels like I have made a small difference in the lives of those who have been touched by it.
And now? Now I look forward to the next 10,000 views.
