I know that is amazing. It is easier for me because I'm observing the USA from a distance. I am Dutch, lived all my life in Nederland. Visited the countrinent of the US twice (loved it, especially the fysical and a little less the social side). We, Nederlanders, are fascinated by the drama over there. Too much perhaps, but there are so many connections between our cultures and the influence of the US in the world is so inevitable, we just have to watch and learn and be alert.

We share the bubble problem over here, but our state and society still exist because we learned to search for middle ground. There even is a Dutch word for this: 'polderen'. In itself a phenomenon I could Ross on for a while (we are re-binging Friends those days) but I will now turn to my letter to you. Will take a while. Stay tuned.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
