Who am I?

The central question in life
and one best faced before that last month before we


who am, I?

what is this being alive thing?

Here's a quote I found on facebook,

A rabbi in Jerusalem was once giving a talk about relationships. 

He said, 
"When you're looking at the person you're with, 
the question shouldn't be, 
'Is this the person I could spend the rest of my life with?' 

Rather, the question should be, 
'Am I the person, 
when I'm with this person, 
that I could be with for the rest of my life?"

why does it have to be the rest of your life?
How about a half a year at a time?

Plants don't live forever and we don't think a California poppy is a failure

what of six months at a time,
to see what can blossom into beauty in that time

then again,
who am I?

who is the me
that I want to be

to live with me

and to love as many people
as possible
for the rest of my life?

ah, that might be worth asking,

why not?
