If you are reading this, you hopefully have somewhat of an idea as to who I am and what I am up to and what this blog & project is about. I will be attempting to document my voyage back to China via a documentary to see where my parents came from and piece together the mysterious shards of our history. I don’t know how long I will keep this blog up for, and I will have to be quite vague with details, as I will be trying to keep a low as possible profile from the overnmentgay when I get to the mainland to start my project. But until then I will go nuts documenting whatever I can. Some people want it all, but I’ve always just wanted to have an off-term blog.
To kick off, I owe a lot of thanks to MGMT and the wise words of Andrew VanWyngarden whose lyrics of “The Handshake” stuck in my head from the first moment I heard them:
“People always told me,
‘Don’t forget your roots,’
I know I can feel them underneath my leather boots.”
In the life I have had I have always reminded myself the importance of keeping my roots in my boots, my roots in my boots, remembering where I came from, what I stand for, and what I value. Now it is finally time to find those roots.
