...is the process by which we create, discover, learn and grow with those we cherish most.


worldfest - exploring corners of the world

Worldfest 09

Worldfest is an annual global experience - celebrating the cultures and flavors that make up our community. It's a festival weekend meant for exploring, learning, and appreciating the cultural diversity that connects us to many corners of the world - as well as our past.

And that is exactly why we love bringing the kids to this festival each year. (Last year's post). It's a gentle reminder of how far our generations before us have traveled. And how much I need to continuously share my own culture with Ava and Noah - not on occasion, but in realtime - everyday. Through food... language... music... and traditional customs - which can never be learned from textbooks or hearsay - But instead from what resonates deep within them - their roots.

Of course, experiencing different cultures of our world in the way the kids embrace and experience it - is also mesmerizing.... and has me motivated to pull those passports back out, and journey east. But until we do... we're going to enjoy what we have here...
