What I miss about America:
I miss raw broccoli, pretzel, beets, artichoke, eggs Benedict, eggnog latte, hot apple cider.
I miss toughness of Chinese American,
liveliness of Mexican immigrants,
humor of African American,
gentleness of Thai,
queerness and particularity of gay people,
craziness of Russian Jews,
assertiveness of Indian,
joyfulness of hippies,
rhythm of Brazillian.
I miss this diversity. Amazingly different lives and values exist out there.
I’m comfortable with being a stranger. I love it.
