I came home to Winston-Salem a couple of months ago from Beijing, where I had a kitchen the size of a small walk-in closet. So I have learned how to make tiny spaces efficient. You can pop popcorn on the stove (the best way; forget the microwave kind), make lasagna and brew iced tea, even in a tiny space.

I worked for a year and a half for China Daily, China's primary English-language newspaper. But I was yearning to come home to the United States (the most beautiful country in the world, its flaws notwithstanding) and be closer to my mother, who is 85, and to be on the same continent as my two grown daughters.
