That feeling you get when you learn about something you didn’t know before is like crisp fall air when it hits your lungs. Whether you’re the kind of person who shares your experience with others or you like to keep it to yourself, nestled comfortably in your mind where you can let it marinate, a new discovery is precious. I invite you to take a few moments away from your busy day to step back from what you know—your work, your chores, your routine—to explore parts of our community you’re unfamiliar with and see what you might discover about yourself.
