“I am me.
I create, process, analyze, contribute, engage.
I inhabit my body though I sometimes forget it’s not a separate entity.
I dance freely when I’m unafraid.
I experience the pounding of my own heart – exhilaration, fear, expansion.
I stay still and yet move almost effortlessly through time.
I depend on memory to catalogue places, people, events both grandiose and mundane.
I see, I smell, I hear, I taste, I feel.
I wonder about people and things outside of myself, discover compassion, empathy.
I incorporate lessons to help me grow, evolve, understand.”
“So do I.”
“Oh yeah, that’s right.”
