Sonoma County doesn’t inspire me with its beauty or climate or roads and trails or quaint towns that drape its landscape. It does not. Many places around the world are equally magnificent in those ways.
What’s special to me about Sonoma County is how much gratitude its people share for these things, and how dedicated they are to the future beyond what they’ll even see in their own lifetimes. Sonoma County is an admirably selfless place. And in REMBA I see friends who wake up every morning and look in the mirror and see themselves as the answer to that future–friends who choose to put that ahead of themselves, and don’t take what’s right in front of them for granted.
That’s why REMBA.
