A panoramic shot of Devout Coffee in the Niles neighborhood — don’t let its size fool you; this joint knows how to make espresso like Europe.

It feels like I learned the answer to happiness ever since I started this journey with you and You

Scott’s Epistemic Approach (on persuasion) —

"…knowing is more than possessing facts; the experiences we have while communicating with others are very important."

'Time itself is neutral
it can be used either
constructively
or destructively...
We must use time
creatively
in the knowledge that
the time is always ripe
to do right'
MLK Jr.
