I’m a big believer that we learn from every relationship. That one relationship leads you to the next armed with a little more knowledge. Even the really lousy relationships that end in major heartbreak. Actually, you learn the most coming out of those. There are a string of lessons I learned from my major heartbreak, one of the best was a recipe frequently used by his family. Tomatoes roasted with parmesan and oregano make an excellent side dish. Now that’s knowledge.
