"I have traveled many roads during my lifetime - some leading me on a path where I found meaning and value; others taking me off course where I was lost.  I have learned that on every road there is a learning tree from which to gather fruit.  After I have taken what I need to learn of this fruit, I try to plant its seed so it can continue on and live for someone else who is hungry"  CR
