“As the months of quarantine dragged on, I worried that he might not remember who I was when he saw me again.

I've been a music geek and Broadway geek from way back before Glee became popular. As a preteen and teen I studied opera and show tunes, and was often found singing Barbra Streisand songs from Funny Girl and On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, or old show tunes like "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess or "People Will Say We're in Love" from Oklahoma.
