Holiday Greetings to All for the 2020 Season

Well, it's been quite a year, hasn't it? I'm sorry to have waited so long to post so much as a quick greeting, but it's been surprisingly tough to muster up the requisite spirit to jump into my customary holiday preparations this year. I've been laying low since March through the lockdowns and everything else this crazy year threw at us, and I only pulled together this year's holiday mix over the past several days. I can't say I'm especially pleased with the outcome. It's not easy to find the right balance between acknowledging the pain and challenges we faced in 2020 and the joyful optimism we've come to expect from each holiday season. But this year's mix is called All Alone on Christmas and it's it's available now on my holiday music website

Unfortunately, I won't be sending actual CDs to my holiday list this year. Preparing and circulating hundreds of CDs involves considerable time and it seems fewer folks each year have working CD players. Besides, after 15 years, I feel it's probably time to find some other ways to express the holiday spirit. 

Thankfully I'm well and healthy this holiday season, and I'm looking forward to the new year and the changes it will hopefully bring. My best to all for the new year, and thanks for your kind words and holiday cheer over the years!
