Why 'Great Circle'?

A Great Circle is a navigational tool which describes the shortest distance between two points on the globe. A Circle is also often used to represent life - the end point is a beginning. Finally, a Circle can be associated with the groups of people in our lives - family, friends, and co-workers. All three of these meanings guide our approach - direct, integral, and all-embracing.
