Growing up without the benefit and burden of privilege has resulted in an inordinate pent-up desire to see what I knew only from books in the library. When I discovered that language can indeed be learned from cable television and free literature alone, I did. But I am as hungry to take my questions on the road and to discover how Plato’s elephant looks and feels from a very different vantage or tactile point as I am to verify if Schrödinger’s cat is dead or alive or both (as we probably all feel at times). I still managed to live for a while at some pretty interesting places around the globe, say, Warsaw, Poznan, Vienna, Munich, London, Oxford, Singapore, and spent time in Thailand, Hong Kong and some very memorable places in the United States. Nothing comes close to New York, though, my favorite habitat for all the aspects of humanity.
