It is Sunday and beloved Jana, who hosts Stream of Consciousness Sunday, posted this prompt: I AM....
Hop over to the site and join us. It is so much fun!!
I am scared too regularly now. Ever since I went to the doctor and she said it was… what was the word, suspicious, my anxiety has soared, even when I think of the ridiculousness of it. This is the most common cancer. I have lots of it in my family. No one has died from it. But I am scared regularly now.
I am a mezzo soprano who misses singing in a group very, very much. Am looking for ways to change this fact – not the being a mezzo soprano, but missing singing in a group. I will be singing in a group, soon.
I am a Mommy Extraordinaire who is in urgent need of a break. Getting grouchy. I’ve had too much stress and not enough just me time without an agenda. Maybe…. Tuesday. Twelve weeks from now.
I am a lover. Of nature, of people, of possibilities, of words.
I am (somehow) collaborating on a phenomenal writing challenge in October: OctPoWriMo. Yes, a poem a day in October. Pretty cool, eh? We are even writing tips for people to use as warm ups in September. I wouldn’t have thought a week ago I would be doing this, but my friend Morgan asked and I thought, “Why the heck not? I can repurpose as needed in case I need surgery, remember, for item #1.”
I am stubborn.
I am an artist of band-aids. I have glued women in literary history on the bandaids I am wearing on my face. Tomorrow, though, I am going to sport a band aid with my daughter’s photo on it.
I am goofy.
I am forgiving.
I am procrastinating more than usual lately.
I am an autism activist, an equality activist, a whatever-it-is that I feel passion for activist. The world needs us. Change wouldn’t happen without us.
I am a Momschlep machine. In other words, I drive my kids hither and yon, following their whims, activities and whatever. It is the part of my job I like the least. Emma has less than a year until her 16th birthday when I will give her keys and a kick out the door with a list of errands to run for me. Practice makes a great driver, right? And NO texting!
