They create a work of art that enables us to see inside to help us understand. And if they are really good, we can see our own reflections staring back at us.” ― Kamand Kojouri Whether virtues, faults […]

Interestingly, both Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart were known for disappearances; Charles Lindberg notably for the disappearance of his baby, which incidentally initiated the career of J.
