With reverence and respect, 
the past was tended and preserved 
for new eyes to see
or that more familiar minds 
might revisit.

Ideas became tangible 
under the skillful shaping and 
a deliberate pace of determination 
to make something beautiful 
and better. 

A community was cultivated, 
passions were shared, 
and the sun cast shadows 
on our paths in new and wonderful ways.
