|Jason connects with his country by flying it’s flag (July 2013)
What connects people? It can be a place, a certain food or an idea. The young man waves his flag begetting camaraderie with his friends who were just behind me as I took that image. Their home country connects them together.
Food has an amazing ability to connect people. Want great white coffee? Head for Old Town. Who has good noodles? Oh, that little stall where the guy has been making it the same way for 20 years. We grow to enjoy the variety available in our locale. It connects us to other people and to the environment in our town or city.
An idea has the power to connect or separate people. In the Culture Corner of this email I talk about idol worship. People of all faiths want to connect with the object of their worship.
What ways are you connecting with places, food & ideas?
