I know.

I am...beside myself.

Perhaps, so Gifted doesn't think us horribly rude, someone could introduce her to the "I AM" poetry challenge.

Seems like that might be a good idea about now.

My humble apologies, Gifted.

As Stephanos noted, we've all been a little tense lately and we apparently have a case of the sillies.

*ahem*

Ron,

Just wanted to tell you (this is as good a place as any) that my "Atlas Shrugged" came in today.  You're going to have to give me a while on this one.  It looks as thick as War and Peace.  You definitely got the easier part of the deal.  

When I get done then we can post a thread titled "The abolition of 'Atlas Shrugged'", or perhaps "'The abolition of Man' Shrugged".  


Stephen.

For Gifted, and everybody else except Christopher, who is rightfully enjoying himself-- <--huh? huh?

*laughing*

Here's the "I Am" poetry template:

"I AM"

I am (two special characteristics you have)
I wonder (something you are actually curious about)
I hear (an imaginary sound)
I see (an imaginary sight)
I want (an actual desire)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I pretend (something you actually pretend to do)
I feel (a feeling about something imaginary)
I touch (an imaginary touch)
I worry (something that really bothers you)
I cry (something that makes you very sad)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I understand (something you know is true)
I say (something you believe in)
I dream (something you actually dream about)
I try (something you really make an effort about)
I hope (something you actually hope for)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

* * *

Due credit given to the originator of this Pip tradition in the Poetry Challenge thread, um, Alicat! *eg*

The "I AM" poem again?

I read my first and ONLY submission for that and have the horror of realizing I haven't progressed at all.

That is who I am, Gifted.  The same person I have always been, just missing a few organs now... (that was for Karen's entertainment, it's okay to snort).

meh...good thing I am okay with who I am.

k - you and angels have about as much in common as Bush and logic (sorry, Mike, couldn't help it).

I always enjoy myself... even when I'm bored. It's just one of the perks of being me.

Mayn, what did you guys turn this into?  LOL.  I leave for a couple seconds and this is what I come to find.  DANG!!  Well I know I am me, but then who is "me"?  Eveybody wants to be themselves... well almost everybody, but how can you be yourself if you don't know who you are?   You need to think deeper about this.

Peace. Love. Forgiveness.

Gifted

"but how can you be yourself if you don't know who you are?   You need to think deeper about this."

I got you logic.
1. first to Know who I am...learn knowledge first.
2. then based on the knowledge about me so I can be myself.

where shall I learn about myself?
1. from others....scary
2. from myself...how?

who is "myself"?
"myself" is who I am. but I can be who I am because I have no knowledge of myself based on your statement.


not something like
1. first be myself...follow my own brain and my own senses and my own judgment.
2. then to learn who I am. (?)


truth and knowledge

truth comes before knowledge or knowledge comes before truth?

And still yet--forgetting all of that--*glare*--I'd like to leave you, Gifted one, with one more bit of music--most apt, I do believe, suiting the manner in which you were received:

Gifted?

Another answer to the challenge (most of us have a written a few of these, but I still think it is a great way to find the answers to your question.)

So I offer you a new one from me, and I do hope to read yours soon.

I sincerely hope we didn't scare you off--we don't generally "haze" new members, but you took it so well, so...thank you!

Oh nah, it's cool.  Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.  However, I know this is a journey I have to embark on by myself

Gifted,
Just to acknowledge the point, your question is not an easy one to answer. And most of us have struggled our way through and grown into the answer(a long time ago). But to go as "deep" as you have suggested is not always a public forum answer. And secondly for some of us it could require a lot of space to answer. I'm available for emails on the subject in the event you are serious.

In the mean time you just as well lay claim to a really rockin' fun thread.

Peace...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I'm glad I made a fun thread.  

Now, you said that some of you grew into your answers, but some people pass away, and don't even get to find out who they were.  However, I know finding out who I am is a journey I must complete on my own.

Peace. Love. Forgiveness.
  Blessings and Guidance

Hi, gifted, there are many forms...all kinds of to evaluate oneself or something like self-finding topic. Do you like to answer all those kind questions to find out who you are or what kind of ability you have?
