Who Are You? Who Am I?

Me:  If you were asked to differentiate me from others, how would you respond?

You:  Are you fishing for compliments?   Me:  Far from it. Come on, what would you say?

You:  Depends who I was talking to.

Me: You’re beating around the bush.

You: Let’s turn it around.  I’ll ask you the same question.

Me: Well, an old woman.

You: Is that all? There’s lots of those.

Me:  How about something that’s lovable?

You: Oh. Uh, you are kind to animals except those you eat.

Me: And…?

You: You try to be creative.

Me: Is that lovable?

You: Why do you want to be seen as lovable?

Me: So that people look at me with warmth.

You: You mean so that people will like you?

Me: That sounds like I’m needy and insecure, doesn’t it?

You: I’m glad you said it and not me.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
