337- Gift of Culture

When we explore a new culture, we explore it through our five senses.

Like learning letters in the alphabet, these novel sensations are simply an exploration of the building blocks of a new language.

Grasping the nuance of that new language requires time, practice, and immersion – but once we master it, we acquire the ability to communicate with a whole new level of depth.

As a nomad and third culture kid, I’ve always found it easier to understand and speak the culture of others.

But occasionally, I get surprised when someone speaks my culture back to me.

The feeling of understanding without more than words is so unexpectedly welcoming and an absolute gift to receive.
