Transcendent Dance

In Looking Like the Enemy, the author recalls a dance performance at camp.

"As we danced to the music traditionally played in a minor key, I had a vision of a pensive person walking beside a gentle stream trickling over rocks. The water followed the bends in the river, finally flowing into a serene pool. The music and the movements took me to a peaceful place where the two cultures unified for a brief time. I felt whole--Japanese by heritage and American by birth."
