Dear Jon,

I know, precisely, that feeling of your parents needing you for your computer expertise. Not personally, for me — when it comes to computers, I am an idiot savant, without the savant. But my husband & son head out to my parents when they are mired in computer confusion & frustration, after first sighing heavily.

I love classical music. It allows me to breathe deeply, an all-too-important don’t-breathe part of the pandemic. In any case, plague or not, classical is my favorite genre of music. Always has been.

Thank you.
