You were grabbed by the scruff of your collar, and invited to see all of this, and then invited to relax, and just hear.

Just hear.

Much to unpack – many new notes to consider… some, in progress…

Hello again, SPAC!

It certainly has been awhile…

AG: I’ll bat lead-off. I’m looking forward to Amy’s thoughts on the performance we heard tonight , both from technical and fan standpoints I am quite sure. But tonight, I’m going to talk about optimism.

First off – don’t we all need more of it now? Take a look at the pic above. And count the reasons…

I’d like to know, exactly – when it was that You last wore a mask to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center grounds – for any reason? Doubtful; and #1 reason…

On our walk to the performance, we were greeted by… well, to cut to the essence – enticing new structures.

Like this…

And then this…

So, this certainly qualifies as #2 reason…

And here’s #3….

I’m not quite sure, myself, Countess…. But when has that stopped me from venturing an opinion!

And here it is: Remember that optimism?

SPAC has certainly put it’s unplanned, idled summer to good use.

In so doing, they have guaranteed new, elevated perspectives to your experience – From end-to-end. Year round.

And, congrats at the same time – they Obliterated, and replaced bathrooms and concessions in the process.

Hmmm… Upgrades – in the summer of 2020, is that right?

I must conclude – that is right.

Folks, if SPAC can make that kind of commitment, of investment in themselves, during this time – then I see plenty of reason for optimism – in the 12866, and beyond.
