As this project winds down, I’ve been thinking more about what it means to see America through a Chinese lens, or my lens, at least. And when I think, I like to spend time by the Pacific. I look west, where my ancestors once looked east.
I’ve realized in the scope of the project how much of a traveller I am. It’s in my bones, in my blood. I love to see new things, explore new worlds, set foot on new journeys and adventures in this big world. And in the social networking age, I can share what I see.
Recently, I looked out on the ocean, but then I looked up, and I saw this kite. Sometimes I wonder if the kite is me, flying free out there but tethered by the messages I send home and ping around the world.
