Thanks so much for doing this yet again, Roger...Looking forward to tomorrow.

2020 is the first year I felt no difference between us. My anticipation is mixed: (from before 2020) the awesomeness of this annual global joint-writing event + (2020-) the levelness of a level playing field called earth. Looking forward to honouring tradition, still.


But, but . . .

News flash: Most of us have moved off-planet. Sorry, thought you knew.

Reach for the stars!

P.S. Just got back from paddling around with with a bunch of snorkeling whale sharks. (They have those here.) So, I guess I'm about ready.

I don't know about the "most of us" you mentioned, but I wish you enough oxygen on the planet of your choice — it's said in the GaryVee Audio Experience podcast: "Your word of mouth is my oxygen." :D
