Westerners have developed a twitch. We change locations so often, it’s become a compulsion. People move to pursue education, to go after jobs, to follow lovers. When lovers become exes, they move again. And there’s a special breed that moves on when a place just loses its appeal. They’re the drifters, the cool types who wander the world, never belonging anywhere. They’ve got that mystique, like James Dean; and part of it is that they’ll never be pinned down. In a society of commitment-phobes, the drifter has gone from fringe icon to mainstream idol.
