I AM. Period. Full stop.
Any sentence I utter, beginning with the words “I am” should probably stop there. Any words that follow should be considered suspect, or even totally false.
If I say “I am”, I’m on solid ground. I know that. But if I start adding ethnic, familial, racial, age-related, gender specific, physical information, or any other references – then this is all made up! A dream. Fiction disguised as fact! Just beliefs, just stuff. It’s quicksand… I’m no longer on solid ground! Yikes!
Please be careful, my friends.
