    What a delightful enthusiastic presentation! Her smile was worth the watching. I especially loved her spiritual connections or “coincidences” that reflect my own experiences at a library table, walking the land or place of an ancestor, or even just being at the right place at the right time for an incredible meeting with destiny.
