"Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake." 

" Only that day dawns to which we are awake."  

   "Never look back unless you are planning to go that way."    Thoreau

When Warren isn't on the trail or in the classroom, he is most likely on the dance floor, especially at a contra dance.  Contra dance is a form of community dance that is about cooperation and bringing people together with live traditional music.  Check out the contra dance events that Warren co-produces and/or invite him to come teach dance at your school or social gathering.
