Random Thought on the Nature of Self (fictional and alive)

Every moment of every day, we are not just living, we are creating who we are.  Isn’t that pretty amazing?

I am as much the sum of my experiences, physicality and psychology, as I am the product of my own invention.  If I say I am a writer, I can then invent myself as a writing writer or a dreaming writer or a shot-down writer, or whatever I decide.  I act what I think I am.

I am what I imagine I am.  Being, living, is simply the constant yet temporal state of self-creation.

Isn’t it interesting when one finds that self changing…

Born in the US, I grew up in Africa and the West Indies, and returned stateside in my teens. After a decade in international development, democracy work, and inclusivity training for domestic NGOs, I joined Peace Corps, and after a year, experienced my first Russian invasion. I followed that up by volunteering with refugees and youth, and after some vacation time climbing minarets and mountains, I returned to New York City, where today I work on social justice with college students, produce short films, and write.
