a good question...

words from an old song.

words that resonate today.

are you who people think you are?

do what you feel and what you project match up?

are you as real as you can be?

most days i can answer "yes" without a moment's hesitation.

but other days? hmmm...

well, other days i just have to hunker down, get back to basics, and believe in myself.

and then remind myself of that: 

Once you are real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.” 
                                                                  -Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

so... there you have it.

  1. Ah, yes, the introvert's refrain . . . just need to hunker down.

    1. There are times I don't ever want to un-hunker!
