Transcript

  • 1. The Midwest is the Best
  • 2. “The beauty that surrounds us in this part of the country is so subtle that it can go unnoticed – unless we stop long enough to look around and take it all in. There are no grand gestures, just little things that, combined, create a certain splendor […] There is a sense of stability here, and the assurance that life and its routines will endure the storms that pass through.” – Larry Kanfer
