So many of us stick to the comfortable. The predictable. The stuff we know and are used to. I think it’s wonderful to try new things on for size.

And I’m not talking clothing.

This is Caroline Shaw’s “Partita”, sung by the group Roomful of Teeth (which includes Ms. Shaw). I think it’s wonderful. I would guess some of you will scratch your heads, but at least give it a chance, please!

It won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013.

Happy Halloween everyone! Obviously had to make a cover of the best Halloween song there is. I put this together at the last minute, but I couldn’t resist an excuse to record this song.

As always, all the Likes, Comments, and especially Subscriptions and Shares keep me going. Your support fuels my next video!

‘This is Halloween’ from the movie Nightmare Before Christmas, composed by Danny Elfman
