"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike."

~ John Muir ~ (1838-1914)

John Muir was a farmer, inventor, sheepherder, naturalist, explorer, writer, and conservationist.  Born in Dunbar, Scotland, he moved with his family to a Wisconsin farm in 1849 and ultimately to California seeking the solitude of nature.  He was founder of the Sierra Club.

About Nancy Polanski
I live in Western New York. I'm retired, after working for 30 years in the Microbiology Labs at our county hospital. My time now is spent mostly with the Karen refugee population in Buffalo, advocating for them, teaching, helping and enjoying them. I've twice traveled to their camps in Thailand and experienced their culture. It seems they have taught me more about life than I have taught them.
