long ago ideas

“When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago." - Friedrich Nietzsche.

To conquer them again, we have to return to what Joseph and Oliver taught.

Peter Whitmer farm

I thought it was cool that the sun came through the window this way, basically symbolizing revelation.
