A Beautiful Mind
Ahhh … September—that time of reflection as summer winds down, school resumes, and autumn begins. It signals nature’s lingering slow dance, winding down and settling into its eventual winter rest.

The Expert’s Secret

“Reach Out and Touch Someone”

These are some thoughts that come to my mind this September. What about you?
