    That question, Who Am I? There are as many ways to answer it as there are trees in the forest and crickets in the trees.

    On some level, I find it very hard to say who I am. Whenever I get close, I find that an element of pretense has drifted in. I find myself on a journey from who I am to who I would like to be back to who I am.
    And around and around we go. I started my adult life as a writer, but I don't know if I can call myself a writer anymore. But I do write.

    I survived my graduate school writing program and got a doctorate for a novel I wrote, but when it was finished, I wanted nothing to do with that book any more. I taught writing and writers, but out of a pure need for survival, I left academia for a job writing in the corporate world. Now I don't even recognize that woman. But I love that woman, and I am thankful for how she led me to where I am and who I am today.

    Deep bows to all who are here and to all who will come. Let us find our way together.
