    Robert, another interesting and well-put-together video.
    Happy to see updated photo of you, which I’d suggested to Doni. You sound like a pro, and now look like a pro-in-the-making. A shame that you can’t continue your theater work for who-knows-how-long. I’m confident you’ll be using this time to your advantage. Be safe, stay well. Sue Shine
