From the desk of Robert Leckington:
As all of you are aware, 2020 has been a real test to us all, with a lot of businesses either shut down or are running at a minimum capacity. The entertainment business is no different. Broadway shows have been either cancelled or postponed, while the tri-state productions that are back to filming are overly cautious and continually checking actors for COVID related symptoms. Things have been halted to an excruciatingly slow crawl.
It is my hope that 2021 is an even better year for all of us and that things will return to normal at least to a better degree than they are now, anyway. I am sending positivity and light to everyone who needs it right now. Sure, I have been under a lot of stress lately and that positivity from me might sound a little odd, but it is my hope that we will endure and bring back what was lost this past year.
We can all help one another some way, somehow. Volunteering to help those that are struggling in any way possible is a good thing. It’s also a character builder. It shows your true character when you decline to help when you have so much more than you need. I took a service job recently that has opened my eyes to a lot of things I didn’t know I was capable of doing. It even has me considering doing outside volunteer work, if I have the time to do it, that is. I, personally want more out of myself. I want to help others and I encourage others to do the same.
As I sit here in a mall parking lot in South Jersey writing this post, I reflect on how far we’ve come this year. We are a nation of strength, we can and WILL get through this pandemic! Please be good to one another, I know it’s a stressful time, but if we can just get past our thoughts of indiscretion, I am positive that we can rebuild from what we’ve endured this past year! Keep up the positiveness my friends!
By the way, “Off The Grid: Survivalism and Frugality”, a docu-drama I co-star in is streaming on Amazon Prime! Go check it out at https://amzn.to/3fjaoz6.
I’ll write to you when I can.
All the best, Robert
