Independence

People ask. I respond by saying I don't really live in America, I live in a small part of the Bay Area that — with some exceptions (the light, the landscape, the climate, the accents) — could as well be London or Sydney. I'm surrounded by the same sort of books, the same sort of films, the same sort of music, a similar sort of attitude, even a variant of a common sort of politics, as I would be in either of those places (no, I don't really do TV). I even occasionally do a doubletake when I see an American flag on a building.
