An American Life
This weekend I am going to indulge my 10 year old son and take him to a Kyary Pamyu concert. She’s a Japanese Pop Star that he absolutely adores. Actually he’s obsessed with all things Japanese. He loves anything Animae, drawing Manga and believe it or not is actually teaching himself the language. He discovered Kyary on You Tube, Animae films and series on the internet and downloaded a million Apps on his IPhone to learn the language.
In contrast his Japanese Nanny, who came to us when he was 4 years old and stayed with us for close to 2 years has embraced the American culture. She now lives on a farm in Rural PA with her husband, 2 children and extended family and assorted animals.
Through the internet and social media the world is so much more accessible these days. Where we are born and how we are brought up does not dictate who or what we will love or where we will end up… Thats a good thing!
