Hey, folks! I'm fresh off a trip to Vanuatu, and it's got me thinking. The contrast there was staggering – from a lush boutique resort to stark poverty, by our definition.

It prompts deep introspection on the arbitrary nature of birth, societal judgments, and the pursuit of material success. Drawing parallels with the islanders' contented existence despite limited resources, we delve into the profound role of connection and community in shaping a fulfilling life.
