Going Against the Trend
I’m not Amish. Or a wanna-be Amish. I’m not even an ex-Amish. I attended a Mennonite college for four years, but I’m not Mennonite. I grew up in Japan, but I’m not Japanese. I’ve lived twenty-four years in Durham, North Carolina, I eat grits and make my own sweet tea, but I’m not a real Southerner. I’m an outsider. I know what it’s like to look into cultures and subcultures from the outside.
