The coming of Fall signals many changes, colorful as the turning of leaves and crisp as the current in the air. For me, the year up to this point has been a time of sowing, watering, cultivating seeds of dreams long held. And preparing for the harvest.

This website is part of this harvest. I look forward to sharing with you, my Community, news of this year’s and future harvests; news of educational, political and cultural events that impact me and you; and images, thoughts and visions to help inspire, challenge and provoke.

Maya Angelou said: “If I could give you one thought, it would be to lift someone up. Lift a stranger up–lift her up. I would ask you, mother and father, brother and sister, lovers, mother and daughter, father and son, lift someone. The very idea of lifting someone up will lift you, as well.”

I hope that this website will help lift you up.
