"For we are the cultural mulattos
Neither animals nor birds
Hanging in balance."
This Indian poem flew out of a cloth-bound book I was cataloguing at Cambridge University Library and hung upside down in my head. I had just moved to England after spending my childhood in the Middle East and Africa. Twenty years and another international move later, I am still hanging in balance, embracing my life as a cultural mulatto.
This blog includes some of my reflections on the cross-cultural experience.
