We are thinking of our friends in the Friends office and missing every sweaty minute of being there.  For the past two nights, we have streamed Meistersinger and Tannhauser, wonderful performances that feel a little strange facing the Pacific Ocean. We are washing our hands, and wearing masks and keeping distance from everybody but each other – that would be no fun at all – and hope that your world and ours will return one day. Maybe. • Sally and Alan Bell, USA
