Four years ago, if you had asked me what I think of Canada I probably would have said (with a high and lofty smirk), “Pft. Canada is crap. Canadian culture is crap. It’s all crap and crappiness.”
But I actually do love my world, the world I was born into. It stresses me out sometimes, but so does my wife’s world. I think every world does, just because our worlds are made up of screwed-up people.
I want to live in two worlds. And I think I can do it. And maybe, by doing it, I’ll be making a newish sort of world. A world with the nice things of suburban Canada and the nice things of rural Pakistan. Wouldn’t that be a nice world? I think so.
What sort of world are you trying to make?
