So Hum.

September 19, 2012

I am not the sweetest, but I am often thoughtful.

I will serve you something warm and surprise you with something small.

I am a giver of advice, which is sometimes unsolicited.

I am someone who wets her pants from laughter and sheds tears of joy.  If you make me laugh you’ll have me at hello.

I am a reader of things above my intellect, and I indulge in things that are beneath me.  I am smarter than I know but not as smart as I act.

I pretend to be a drummer but am really a sucker for lead guitar.  I sing in the car, but only when I am alone.

I am quirky, meticulous, relentless.  I am my own darkness and light.

I love brown, grey, and white.  The smell of rosemary and the taste of brussels sprouts.

I sometimes think with my nose and follow my mind instead of my heart.

I am a runner, tortured by utkatasana.  In my nightmares I run in place, but in my dreams I run fast and sometimes fly.

I need good Mexican food and daily alone time.

I am obsessed with regularity.

I am a mother, wife, supporter, sister, daughter, friend and introvert.

So hum.

So hum is part of a Sanskrit derivative that can be loosely translated as “I am me.”

This writing exercise was inspired by my friend, Kir, who was inspired by our friend, Erin.
