Creating a culture

South of the Swiss Border in the Italian Alps is the town of Luino.  Known for its extraordinary beauty (it sits on an alpine lake), it is also home to a weekly market that has (supposedly) been in operation since the 1500s.  Every Wednesday the town floods with merchants from near and far who sell whatever they can to whomever has the money and desire.

I was there earlier this summer and spoke to one merchant who was interested to know where I was from.  When I told him Canada, he made a remark I won't forget anytime soon.  To paraphrase, he said that Italy had, for more than 2000 years, shown the rest of the world what culture was all about.  Now (in his mind), it was just a playground.  But, he continued, Canada has the chance to direct the course of what culture will be for the future.  "A thrilling opportunity!" he said.

I quite agree.  We are indeed in a wonderful position to decide what kind of culture we want to have.  We are creating it right now.

    Articles that have huge and shrewd comments are more pleasing, at any rate to me. It's fascinating to examine what different people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their point of view could help you later on.
