Pulse of Naperville Music Scene – Come together to appreciate small things


To say 2020 has been hard to navigate and endure is like saying The Beatles were “kinda famous.” As the year comes to a close, and we continue shopping for stylish and comfortable masks and celebrate special occasions over Zoom sessions, we can all hope for a brighter time.

Whenever I’m dealt a bad hand, I always try to find the best cards to play. A few high cards and a pair of deuces were the best this year could muster up, but it made me realize a few things. First, everyone at the table has a bad hand, and it’s been nice to have others who can sympathize.

“We’re all in this together” has made some things pass a little easier.

I have also proven that a pair of deuces can take the pot on occasion. I have not photographed a concert in almost a year, but the silver lining is that all the artists are home as well, and they are usually happy to chat. I have done many interviews that never would’ve happened without the lockdowns.

Finally, the thing I have realized more than anything else is that negatives make for more intense positives. Just think what it will be like to meet friends at a restaurant or a concert and give them a big hug, mask-free. Something we took for granted just a short time ago will seem like a wondrous, monumental event.

These times may actually help us to appreciate the smallest things in life. That pair of deuces you’re holding might just make you rich.
