What Is, What Could Be, and The Art of Yearning For What Never Was

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne,  I enjoyed you letter dated October 17th, but I’m left again wondering how the hell did another whole month go by?

Where EXACTLY is the Marvin 3 sync file in Dropbox?

I have linked Dropbox and got sync set up in Marvin 3, and it works great. I'd like to know exactly where the Marvin 3 sandbox file is, but I cannot find it anywhere in my Dropbox. My Dropbox is practically empty, so I'm surprised I can't see it anywhere. It's not in the Apps folder so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Where the heck is it?
