"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit." ~ Dawna Markova

Who are you? 

Really, who are you?  Do you know?

More than your name.  More than your address.  More than some title on a business card. 

Who are you?

Deep within YOU, what is it that makes you so unique, so amazing, so incredible, so YOU?

Hint:  It IS there.

Have you discovered it?  Lived it?

What is it that makes you come alive, lose track of time, imagine the possibilities, jump up and down, get lost in thought, smile for no reason at all?

Find that piece of YOU – that piece which sings YOUR song!

Be Remarkable!

WOWZERS!!!! WOW, Lance. Just wow!
That quote……oh!
I’m undone.
My heart just rolled out
onto the floor,
exposed and aired out
like the blankets I’m pulling
out of storage.
THANK you for this brilliant post.

Isn’t that quote something? I love it, too!

Thanks so much for being here…and for being the amazing YOU that you are!!

I love it of course! Your reference to music. My heart sings in the solitude of the mountains, in the mellow tones of playing my cello, in the warmth of a strangers smile, in the hugs of my loved ones, and the friendships throughout the world I have….online and off!
Thanks, as always Lance! and thanks for being that great friend!
In Harmony,

I know that music permeates your soul…and what a gift that is.

So, so wonderful having you here, dear friend…

That’s an awesome quote! So far my mind became to wonder what does the quote mean. Life or to be human. 🙂

Who Am I? I think I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to figure this out Lance. We change throughout our life. Trying to pin down our identity in a single instant can be a futile endeavor as every new experience changes who we will ultimately become.
