I am set in my ways. After half a century, my beliefs and principles aren’t going to change much.
I am open-minded. I welcome your ideas, welcome learning new things. If I don’t agree with you, that doesn’t mean I don’t understand.
I am afraid sometimes. There are scary things in this world that I know I can’t conquer.
I am going to keep fighting. I may not always win, but I won’t give up.
I am tired and weak. Age and nature have not always been kind. My joints ache, my strength wanes, and my mind wanders.
I am still alive. I may not move as smoothly or as quickly as I once did, but I won’t stay down.
I am easygoing, but can be assertive when I need to be.
I am a hugger.
I am forgiving. I don’t hold grudges, but trust is a hard thing to earn back.
I am a wife and mother, sister, daughter and friend.
I am a writer and photographer.
I am a daydreamer.
I am proud of my Celtic heritage.
I am a conservative
I am a believer.
I am southern.
I am the only me I can be.

You forgot, “I AM one with the creative source of the Universe.”
I am somebody who wishes she knew you personally. (Although I sit with Lance on the politics…) Great take T!
Great piece. Now I know you a little better and like it. Thanks for sharing.
Not a bad autobiography at all, at all
flip politics and gender and we are twins
and I can attest to you being a hugger…me too
