Lost at Sea....

The musings of an out-of-place Dominican-York who belongs neither here nor there.

Junot Diaz on….well, things that are real for 1st/2nd generation immigrants of Dominican parents.

He touches on how there’s a whisper in every immigrant when they return to their country of origin that tells them “You don’t belong here [anymore]”.

Welp. 

I know it, I feel it. My blog bio has attempted to describe. (Can’t believe I just found this particular video just now).
