What, how and why?
‘Twas 2008 when God blessed us with a trip to the USA, euphemistically known as America. What is that about, ‘one nation under God’ claiming the name of a whole continent as its very own? I learnt on this trip that America was full of anomalies. Well actually I think I learnt that during my early addiction to ‘The Dukes of Hazard’. For sorry Lithuanian-based-Kiwis like myself, America is one big cultural hazard.
Don’t get me wrong, I survived it, loved it and ate too much. But as the fat faded from my belly, the juxtapositions trampolining in my brain just would not rest and I mean would not rest. I was tormented with such questions as ‘why is the mid-west neither in the middle nor the west?’ The great American phenomenon of therapy was needed. Hence the ‘Ziploc Bag’, my self-medication, came into creation.
I did not mean to write about my trip. I just woke up one morning and thought, enough is enough and ever since I have been trying to write it out of my head.
This is still a work in progress. Chapters are being edited, a glossary and other add-ons are yet to be written. But please feel free to read.
