Sweet. It's a word you don't hear much, especially now. Home Sweet Home? After four months of sheltering in place, what's so sweet about being home? Sweet Dreams? It's been months since I had one. Sweet Spot? I know what it used to mean, but now it means keeping six feet away from people. Sweet Nothings? That's still how most people describe the long, rambling opens to my shows (just like this). So, I thought it was time to give Sweet a little love. It was only for two hours, then everyone could go back to life as we know it these days.
