Forbidden City, Beijing. Chinese character "understand" with a poetic extra stroke.
Wake up see the new Beijing 2013, watercolor
My time in Beijing this past fall may have been life-changing and redirected me to the place i should be. I came home with an understanding of the mainland and with it i removed all bias and my skeptical mindset. I hid a lot of me over these eight years in america and yes it was necessary to forget parts of my heritage to fit in, change, adjust whatnot. but now that i am comfortable in my yellow, i don't mind rolling down my windows and blasting asian music. it only seems natural.
Shanghai, it won't be long!
