"You must become an ignorant man again. And see the sun again with an ignorant eye. And see it clearly in the idea of it." From Notes Towards a supreme Fiction by Wallace Stevens

It's really simple: President Trump is accusing Joe Scarborough of murder because Trump doesn't like that Scarborough criticizes him on his television show. If Scarborough were to stop criticizing him, Trump would stop accusing him of murder.

As many of you know jazz and classical music are my two great passions. Here are some pieces to consider as you negotiate your version of lockdown wherever you are. #coronavirus #MusicMonday #culturefromhome…
