Imagine your typical morning coffee or tea, how it tastes and the way it makes you feel. Now imagine being on a remote island, sun rising, with your drink in hand. That sip is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted—that’s context.

This month’s global exploration of Context is chosen by our Minneapolis chapter and illustrated by David Schwen.
