limin’ - the art of enjoying life, Caribbean from Trinidad and Tobago.
Hang out with friends or gather a group around you. Relax as you celebrate relationships and community while setting aside, at least for a moment, productivity and efficiency.

Create a noise in your kitchen. Invite friends old and new. Prepare them a meal with soul, creativity and love.

Be hospitable and create a space where your friends can set aside all concerns. Find community and a sense of belonging devoid of all burdens.

With only one life to live, be mindful about every moment. Value each meeting and discover friends and strangers anew. Be enriched by the unexpected.

Mix together good company, lively conversation, with much laughter and some libations. Have a good time; enjoy the fun.
