“It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for some place that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere. But it’s a good place to be, I think. It’s like floating. From up above, you can see everything at once. It’s the only way how.” -- Danzy Senna, Caucasia
"A long time ago I disappeared. One day I was here, the next I was gone. It happened as quickly as all that." -- Opening lines from Danzy Senna's novel Caucasia, published in 1998.
