My Sacred Place…Watching lions sleep.

Fear had me for five months but today I decided to stray a bit from my place and into that park with the green bench and glorious scenery. This place reminds me of that tree-top place of mine at ALA. The place where I went to pray, cry and meditate. Where I presented my Leadership…
