I posted over on Mastodon.

The most important thing that happened to me was to become, at age 7, an expatriate kid. I was only that for a few years, but the learning stuck. I retain this point of view even decades later. Here’s 5 lessons.

1. I know that the things taken for granted are often arbitrary.

2. I learned to be a minority.

3. I learned to ask questions about the unfamiliar in respectful ways.

4. I learned what class, wealth, and poverty were.

5. There’s very little of the planet untouched by colonialism.
