"Studying" with Gina and the Thinkers has opened up a whole world of learning for me. Thanks to Zoom I didn't miss a beat in my classes and the weather didn't even matter! Warm and cozy at my table with a cup of tea I enjoyed each class and the interaction with the other Thinkers. I am so thankful for technology today! Joan
