I have Education running through my blood and the joie de vivre of the Elkanah House children brings me joy, daily. In July every year, my life grinds to a “halt” as I watch every last minute of the Tour de France. Walking feeds my soul, no distance seems to long, but slopes do seem too steep! Family and friends complete my life.
