upon men's hearts,
as for that subtle something,
that quality of air that
emanates from old trees,
that so wonderfully changes
and renews a weary spirit."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

An inner tutor or teaching and learning mechanism
that takes us forward daily. It is a resource that,
where recognized, has infinite potential.”

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”
