“Maturity cannot be forced; it takes time, patience, and nurturing. Nature is a great teacher, showing us that everything develops at the perfect time.” (The Secret Power of Yoga, Nichala Joy Devi 252.)
St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and is the oldest continuously occupied city in the United States. Shortly before 1900 Henry Flagler brought the railroad and it became a resort for the wealthy elite of the United States. In the 1960s it was the sight of many famous sit-ins and protests in the battle for the passing of Civil Rights Act. It has a population of about 12,000, smaller than Kirksville. Many historical relics still remain the Castillo de San Marco, a Spanish fort built in 1672, and the oldest wooden school house built before 1716.
