For Most of Us, This Is Not What We Think It Is
No one will ever be back in the country they grew up in. There is no such place. There is only the place we are now. By limiting our ourselves to a frame of reference that lives only in our memory, we are choosing to see the world not as it is, but rather as a corrupted projection of our own imagination. The genuine frustration that so many of us feel can often be found in the dissonance between the actual world we live in and the world we once imagined it to be.
