The Family We Create - Families of All Kinds - Interview w/ Jenn Cleary and Dorje Dolma




Our Friendly World with Fawn and Matt show

Summary: The Family We Create – Families of All Kinds:  this episode is the perfect example of family, the family that we create and showing that it really entails families of all kinds. And interestingly enough, it's also the song title (“Families of All Kinds”) of one of the songs on Jen Cleary's new album “All Together Now!” written and produced for children and families and celebrating environmental and social consciousness (which, by the way, our baby girl did the album cover art of!).  Jen Cleary is a folk, rock, and blues singer-songwriter, and one of her  amazing family members, her daughter, Dorje Dolma, the author of "Yak Girl: Growing Up in the Remote Dolpo Region of Nepal" is here! We discuss the double layered meanings of Jenn’s music, the stories that led to the songs, the meaning of family, and get immersed in the fantastic story of how Jenn and Dorje met on this tiny yet immense and perfectly synchronized blue dot and created a blossoming family that is now many arms outstretched around the world. Their beautiful family story brings love and hope!    Hall of fame quote from the show: “ You just have to trust in yourself and trust in the others... when those right people come in your life. And even if it's a little bit uncertain, you kind of have to keep moving forward. So even if I get scared, I just believe that it's going to be okay.” – Dorje Dolma   https://jenncleary.com/ http://www.dorjearts.com/ https://www.amazon.com/Yak-Girl-Growing-Remote-Region/dp/1591812887
