Everyone is an explorer. How could you possibly
live your life looking at a door and not open it?
-James D. Ballard, submitted by Linda H., Mt. Pleasant, Michigan


Far better is it to dare mighty things,
to win glorious triumphs,
even though checkered by failure…
than to rank with those poor spirits
who neither enjoy much nor suffer much,
because they live in a gray twilight
that knows not victory nor defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt, submitted by Paula G., Orlando, Florida


This weekend was an exciting opportunity for me to hang out with
student leaders from Salt Lake Community College AND to see the
magnificent fall colors that have peaked in the Wasatch Mountain
Range. I was mesmerized by the autumnal palette that crept over the
mountains, and I was inspired by the enthusiasm of the students. I
hope you can find some beauty to encourage your explorations this
