I would also love a down loadable version of many of these power points. It seems above like you should be able to click where it says " Download as PPT" but it won't work.

In me is the small child of my early days ” “ I play a tiresome game ” “ The things I want to express are so beautiful and pure ” “ So let us then try to climb the mountain, not by stepping on what is below us, but to pull us up at what is above us, for my part at the stars; amen ”
