Culture and what it means to me

Today I heard the definition of culture and it hit the nail right on the head..

“Culture is everything we do not HAVE to do”

So, I take it I am now a member of Scouse culture as I am a follower of Liverpool, a subscriber of black culture because I like hip-hop, I am an affiliate of the artistic culture because I love to design & photograph but most of all.. I am an associate of the hippie culture because I love to love….

But, culture is more to me than just simple events or followings. It is the reason I am “me”.

It is the carving block that life and society has used to mould a little child, born in 1977, into the 35-year-old mature student – who is adoring every element of his life now.

it is the reason I have accumulated my circle of friends, it is the reason I am sitting beside over 500 DVD’s and CD’s and even more.. it is the reason I am using this laptop now to recite these words..

Culture is the very essence of my life….

I am very lucky, I have spent a lot of time travelling, reaping the benefits from my interaction with various other cultures all over the world – all of which aided me in becoming the person I am now – and because of such experiences I also adopt many other people’s cultures too..

I was lucky enough to spend time with Paleo-Indians in Pittsburgh, and although I do not follow their exact customs I try to include their peaceful mannerisms in my life… So I am lucky enough to subscribe to the culture of these amazing people too

but, it is dinner time.. and I am now going to subscribe to the culture of health eating and enjoy my dinner…..
