Actually the first time you ever kind of came across my radar even before you reached out via email was. I saw a lecture. And i don't know if it was livestreamed or a saw recording of it you gave For z to college Was that was that recorded on the west coast. Did you visit the bay area. Or was it one of those in communion out in the communities a tuna now. I had the good fortune of of coming to zeh tuna and it's a such a blessed place in the spirit. There is just incredible. So i it wasn't my first time visiting and hopefully it won't be my last either in shala in shalva that's rain out and we missed you so it was like a public lecture that you gave at. That event has a series where. I'm sure it's on pause during these times.
