  1. Thanks for the “Like” as always, Ms. Sara and a robust thank you as well, Ms. Niva for your contribution to my modest blog. I have never had the pleasure of meeting either of you (my loss) but I would venture to say that we have something in common: the need to express ourselves via the written words and (in your cases, after reviewing your latest posts) the ability and talent to do so. Best wishes on all your personal endeavors both on and offline.
