Hi Mark, I hope you and the gang are well. I had some changes in my life and couldn't make it work to stay with the cohort. I appreciate being part of your great community. Thanks for your kindness and inspiration.Wishing you all great photo adventures.
Warm regards, Kevin Miller
(I don't have direct contact to the cohort now so that is why I am writing you through this post.)
