“My eyes still see colors, I still feel the wind and the rain, and believe in things unseen. I still see and appreciate the art of everyday life. Yet faced with my seemingly overwhelming success, I was not looking for fame and fortune, nor adorers to show up in hoards; my dream was simply for someone to listen to the stories I tell. Now that I have come to the realization that I belong, I now need to belong somewhere I feel free.” —Thomas Slatin, Somewhere I Feel Free
