In 2009, we decided it was time to quit work for a while and travel. Jessica gave up her job as an acting teacher and theater director, while Barry occasionally accepts a job acting or lecturing. We have been traveling as often as we can since then. The photo attached is Barry playing the role of Julius Caesar.
Barry: Schopenhauer says it best, "harm no one, on the contrary, help others as much as you are able to."
Jessica: live, love, learn.
