2019/2020

  [parts of this column were published in the Sarasota Herald Tribune]  You will most likely read this column at the very end of 2019.  2020 is hours away. There is always the hoopla of the year-end: top ten lists, news reviews,  and, on a personal level, a look back at the year and what […]
