Watching and talking to as a child, then following, studying, and fighting for as an adult. An essence that earlier people seemed to have seen and understood. Why had I been so attracted to this animal more than all the others in the Lion House at the Bronx Zoo?

Workshops such as these were worthless unless there was a clear statement of the actions required to achieve the stated.
