I AM...

Earlier this week darling Julie of Just Jules invited me to take part in her latest project/giveaway. She asked me to bring my friends and encourage them to participate, too. Consider yourselves invited!

I thought of so many answers to what I am. Eccentric, unique, authentic, original, one-of-a-kind, creative, learning, changing, growing, a work in progress, a child at heart.

Somehow I settled on this:

Evolving - developing; gaining through experience

I feel like I have been so many different versions of myself in 27 years and 10 months and 21 days. Every day I wake up and am different in some way. There is always this feeling that I don't know yet who I will ultimately be, but that is the joy and surprise and fascinating journey of being alive. The prospect of tomorrow is what keeps me going today. The anticipation and depth of possibilities are what it means to be alive. I am grateful for the experience of living. For me, to live is to evolve.

I am tired and I have much academic writing to do before I sleep. Thanks for the diversion, Julie! I look forward to seeing others responses on your blog.


  1. Very good post. I'll stick around and watch your evolution. : )

  2. a wonderful thing to be...evolving - I look forward to it.

  3. Evolving is such a wonderful answer to Jules question. I hope you continue to evolve becoming more brainy and beautiful and just enjoy life.


Have a Brainy and Beautiful Day! Love reading all the Brainy and Beautiful Things you say <3
