I think my becoming a digital nomad just enabled me to see what was already there. The absurdity of a lot of things wasn’t nearly as obvious as it is now, but it was always there! I think it’s great that you don’t feel in touch with mainstream American culture — it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the “movie set” mentality and forget the challenges the rest of the world is facing. I know this from firsthand experience because every time I buy a cup of coffee — even now — I have to remind myself that this is a luxury and that I should be grateful for it!
Thank you for the comment and for everything you do help educate people, Jennifer! 🙂
