Words of Wisdom from Parents at HarborChase

Posted by HarborChase on Dec 1, 2018 8:00:00 AM

“Time, perhaps, is the most excellent teacher. We pass through the present with our eyes blindfolded,” writes Milan Kundera in Laughable Loves. “We are permitted merely to sense and guess at what we are actually experiencing.
