Identity
Description: 

Now, I don’t do “homesick” and I’m not particularly patriotic, but that day, I found myself thinking about how one’s national identity shapes one’s psyche. I told a friend back in the States that the longer I live overseas, the more I realize how American I really am. This observation is not particularly profound, I know, and perhaps even Maria Revere Balestier came to the same conclusion all those years ago.
