Celebrating Cultures Along the Silkroad

January 1, 2013

If adventure has an all embracing motive it is surely this: we go out.  Because it is our nature to go out, to climb the mountains and sail the seas, to fly to the planets and plunge into the depths of the oceans.   By doing these things we touch something outside or beyond, which strangely seems to approve our doing them.

The Silkroad Coffee Traders move towards extending and expanding our horizons.  We expand our being, we revel in a mastery of ourselves which gives an impression, mainly illusion, that we are masters of the world we explore.   In this way, we explore and expand our spirit.  This is the Silkroad we are on.  We are, then, Silkroad Coffee Traders.

We at the Silkroad Coffee Traders focus on celebrating the cultures and traditions along the Silkroad through ideas & images. The pages that you will find here are about images that inspire and move us. The images and ideas come from many places. You will also see images that have affected a shift in how we view and interact with the world with the different traditions and ancient cultures along the way.  These images all inspire us to make room for new ways of seeing and experiencing the world in which we live. These images, then, form the Silkroad Coffee Traders process of discovery.

Celebrating Maile Cultures

January 1, 2009

If celebration has an all embracing motive it is surely that we celebrate what is around us.  It is our nature to go out, to climb mountains and sail the seas, to fly to the planets and plunge into the depths of the oceans.  By doing these things we touch something outside or beyond, which strangely seems to approve our doing them. When we extend our horizon, we expand our being, we revel in a mastery of ourselves which gives an impression, mainly illusion, that we are masters of our world.  We are going out to celebrate Mailie Cultures across the oceans.
