We are doing this again next week:  PMN Members are invited to share a song or a poem during next week's online event.  In order to do so you must first register using this link:   The 20 or so PMN members who are selected to perform will receive an e-mail midweek next week with a link to PMN's Zoom video conference account.  Everyone performs through their own computer connection through the Zoom platform.  When you register, there is a chance to upload your song's lyrics to help those of us who are singing along with you at home (while our mics are all on mute).
