one’s ability to learn for life NOW."

|“You can’t punch keys on a cell phone when you’re in a canoe and the river is running high. You can’t stare at a computer screen when you’re aiming a bow and arrow. There is still freedom and self-discovery to be found between the patches of sun and shade in the woods, and that’s likely something that will never change.” Cherri Ellis, Charter Media|
