Ferment the World is the evolution of my approach to life and it encapsulates three verbs that resonate with me: Learn, Make, Do.
When I think about the phrase “ferment the world”, it has literal connotations and figurative connotations for me. Literally, I love to ferment things: beer, sauces, salsas, condiments, pickles, kraut, kimchi, vegetables and things I haven’t gotten around to yet. My wife makes kombucha and yogurt, has dabbled in kefir and has her sights set on other things down the line. There’s a lot of bubbling going on in my world and I’m going to explore it right here on this site.
Figuratively, “ferment the world” means I aim to deliberately take measures to evolve myself and the world around me. A very basic description of the nature of actual fermentation features an agent devouring elements in its environment which causes the output of new elements. When I insert my person into this equation, ferment the world is a self directive to experience what this world has to offer and use those experiences to change myself into something better than I was before. This site will document my experience as I aim to ferment (my) world.
Learn, Make, Do is my action plan for "fermenting the world".
Learn: There is so much to learn out there and learning is a prime way to evolve myself and my world. By researching, discussing and reviewing I will ready myself with the knowledge to better tackle what I want to do and who I want to be.
Make: Making things is the key to gaining and improving skills, fostering a sense of accomplishment, forging relationships with others and gaining a greater understanding of things.
Do: Doing things is the only way to experience the world beyond personal boundaries, it encourages participation in life and it reinforces relationships. By getting out there and challenging myself, experiencing what other people/places have to offer and participating in relationships I will have a great foundation of experiences to draw from.
I created this site to keep a journal of my experiences, to share my obsessions with others and to invite discussion. I look forward to seeing how this site is going to evolve along with me as I ferment away.
