Last year at the beginning of April I decided to log a daily lesson per day. I was inspired to do this by my friends photo project. I wanted to be able to capture a part of my day each day that left an imprint on me through something I heard, learned, or experienced that caused me to value life in a greater way. At the beginning of each month I will be releasing the coinciding month. These are lessons from the year previous, so this will be April of 2013.
