This week marks the fifteenth anniversary of my emigration from the
Netherlands to the United States. I’ve been in no mood to celebrate.
Truthfully, I’m not even certain I would still move if I had to make that choice today.
That’s sad, isn’t it? Sadder still is that if I’m honest, I can only promise him it’ll get worse. But wait! There’s an election next month, so everything’s going to be just fine, right?
