What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 38 and END in a series – “…a whole Manzanar mentality I had lived with for twenty-five years….”

September 7th, 2019

“Until this trip I had not been able to admit that my own life really began there. The times I thought I had dreamed it were one way of getting rid of it, part of wanting to lose it, part of what you might call a whole Manzanar mentality I had lived with for twenty-five years. Much more than a remembered place, it had become a state of mind. Now, having seen it, I no longer wanted to lose it or to have those years erased. Having found it, I could say what you can only say when you’ve truly come to know a place: Farewell.”

END OF SERIES
