Things Change

Everything we post on the web is anonymous, right?

I'd like to get back to that era when I was talking and some people were listening, but nobody was tracking me. Now, everyone everywhere is tracked, and nobody's listening.

I'm in New York now. Five years ago, when I started this blog, I had barely begun a new life and my dad's life had just been snuffed out. I was reading the Economist and thinking about settling in Europe.

Fast forward a few years and I'm working part time for professors, traveling back and forth to Asia every year, speaking at embassies and, most unbelievable of all, eating meat.

It's happening so fast. The world outside me is so loud. I wonder what I'm thinking sometimes.
