Autumn DVD Giveaway Winners Announced

TogetherAgainDVDThe Autumn DVD Giveaway was a larger turnout than I expected.

I jotted this down on a piece of paper many years ago and had forgotten all about it and it just popped back into my head. I love how Emerson thinks, the depth and insight he brings to his work is so appealing to me. I need to get more of his work; remember to be excellent for someone.

Nothing is ever wholly lost.
That which is excellent remains
forever a part of this universe.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
