Workspace, Dinner, Covid-19 Memories
Mark set up a dedicated workspace, referred to as the shed quarters, due to noise complaints from his wife, who also works from home.

Imaginary Trip to New York With a Book

They also decided on having a beer, preferably a local IPA, to enjoy.

Mark introduced a new digital art gallery where individuals can immerse themselves in the life and works of their chosen visual artist.
