I'm back in the corporate world again (neccessary and loving it btw) but the fire for entertainment and my desire to positively contribute to my community's mental well being still burns strong.
Everyone stay well and mask up, Durham! (by-law Friday!) Though we may not be able to sing out loud together, I hope you're still singing loud with your hearts! Take care and support local! Let's keep engaged with each other until we can speak moistly together again.
