    Just finished the book. I have a mild acquaintance with subjects. Is there background to explore well thought out alternatives?

    Dear Justin,

    I believe it is my good fortunate that I have never had to Zoom or Microsoft Team for a meeting. Nor have I acquired the technology or technical savvy that might be required to do so.

    I believe you are being properly and appropriately cautious in having the Spring Discussions on-line. I, however, will not be joining you.

    Please do let me know if you return to in-person meetings. I would like to rejoin the discussion group.

    Stay Safe, Best Terry
