Tuesday Morning Wake-Up Call


The invented person, borrowed from the real—abstracted, isolated—is the person we finally know, or feel we know.  I make myself up from everything I am, or could be.

For many years I was more desire than fact.

When I stop becoming, that’s when I worry.”

Stephen Dunn, from “Notes” in Walking Light: Essays and Memoirs

  2. Sometimes I’m a figment of my own imagination – fake it til you make it…other times I think I’m totally real.

  3. Ahhhh, how I love Stephen! as Mimi said, ‘Fake it til ya make it’ is sometimes the fall back. But I’m finding the older I get, the more real it becomes. After 50+ years, I’m gettin’ used to this ole skin of mine….😉
