A discussion on the things that matter. As an educator, I take pride in the fact that I am a constant and lifelong learner. Writing about the things that matter in life, the experiences that continually shape us, the people we meet, the food we taste, the conversations we have, the lessons we've learned, the places we visit, the hearts we touch, the connections we make.
I had so many submissions that I could have chosen for this topic, but decided on this photo of three beer drafts taken in Boston on Marathon Monday, one year after the bombings at the finish line. Two friends and myself cheered the runners on at Mile 22, at Cleveland Circle. Let me tell you these beers, never tasted so good as they did that day. The whole state of Massachusetts' mouths were watering for retribution and triumph. It turned out to be a fabulous day. Mouthwatering.
