Our family strives to live life deep in socio-economic blended community as a wholistic model of American Dream prosperity. The untempered "normative" Western cultural models of continuous "up, more & go" have become shallow and exhausting to us.

May we all be encouraged to think deep, dream creatively big

and choose to live different for the common good!
