Put there just a spark but in doing so address the needs of the whole person... For the body, the mind and the spirit.”

74 Jerry Garcia (Marketeer/Songwriter) “The Grateful Dead” “You cannot merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do.”
