    Superb idea and a great read! Nice to gain insight on how our musician friends are coping and spending their time in isolation. Thanks Scott. Looking forward to the next one.

    Thanks for this. It was a balm for the soul. Andy Statman's words -- what a treasure that man is. "All in all the time home has allowed me to work on myself spiritually, emotionally and musically. I look forward to the time when all this suffering is behind us and we can all appreciate that which we usually take for granted."

    This was a great read; exactly what I needed today. What a nice range of top-level musicians are represented, too. Some of my real favorites. Once again, Mandolin Cafe delivers just what is needed. Thanks to Scott and all these fine musicians.

    Extreme lockdown here in Dubai (you need a permit to walk to the supermarket, you can only get one every three days, and you have to go alone).

    We're stuck in a 43rd-floor apartment I'm envious of the scenery in the pictures!

    Already? Hasn't exactly flown by. And please, let there not be a need for a two-year anniversary!

    But yes - great insights and anecdotes from some great people. Thanks for putting this together.

    Putting aside my typical tendency to try to use humor to deal with downturns (with mixed results) - that is, to be quite serious for a moment - I wonder whether an updated version of this project would be possible. These date from the first couple of months of the pandemic, and are full of plans and projections for the then-upcoming slowdown. Who knew then it would still be affecting so many so deeply and broadly a year hence? It would be interesting, and hopefully inspiring, to see how our mandolin mentors have been managing, and hopefully thriving through all this. Not necessarily these same correspondents, but whoever wishes to share their tales and thoughts with us.

    Thank you.
