Life Learning

PatternSquare06a_starshapeI have been fortunate in my life to have had many varied cultural experiences. As a little girl, my Father would tell us stories of being in India/Burma during WW2 – wonderfully colorful stories of his interaction with the local people.

Our Brownie group included many girls from the local First Nations Reserve. My husband and I lived in Europe before everyone spoke English – what an eye opener that was! We taught our children about other cultures through food – cooking an exotic (to us) feast for as many national holidays that we could find books for in the library. I feel very fortunate to be able to travel and continue to enrich my life by learning about other cultures.
