Good question !
 
Fun words.
I would love to be Barbara Streisand because the woman can belt out a tune that can be felt all the way to the heavens.
I could be Shirley and dance like I never danced before.
I could be Remedios Veros and paint like a magician.
O could be Maryilin Monroe or Judy Garland........I guess its okay to be me too, I am okay I think ! ha ha !

Most often we are not
who we think we are
We are not who we perceive ourselves to be
If we go inside
searching near and far
Would we notice what we might not want to see

That's good, I dig it!

I wanted to share THIS with you..........

HYPNOTIZATIONALLY SPEAKING
I'm sorry that I don't remember you but I was hypnotized once to forget someone, maybe he was you; and if that's true then maybe you can be somebody else this time.

I saw a movie about this very thing, don't remember the name or even the characters. But this man and woman had this relationship that was very intense yet volitile for the both of them. They both had their memories erased and guess what, they met again and started the whole thing over again. But this time they seemed to have come to an appreciation of each other though they didn't realize they had met before. It was really quite interesting.

Makes me wonder how many of us could have a fruitful relationship now with someone in our past without hyperventilating over past transgressions??? But it seems as though "our expectations" are always met. Hahaha!!! Ah is that the key? Our expectations in relation to past experiences???

Love, Deb

Love, Deb

This is getting sooooo confusing?
Are we not ever who we think we are?
Can't we take of the masks and see?
Sure, I'd like to be someone else for a while
And I would choose Bette Midler,
Or Katharine Hepburn.... and just do what I want
Wear comfortable clothes all the time
Dance, sing, and do headstands!
(that would be Bette Midler)
If we want to be someone else,
What would they be while we were them?
Would they be empty shells?
I like who I am----most of the time
But, now you are telling me that I may not be
who I think I am.....
In any case, I know who you are!;)

Love and hugs,

Wow this is really a heavy thread

Well,
 
We are much more then we think.;)

I thought this might fit into this thread, in any case it is a poignant and beautiful song....even if the artist felt that there is just one life....nori
Movie: La Cage aux Folles Artist: Unknown Artists Song: I AM WHAT I AM
I am what I am
I am my own special creation.
So come take a look,
Give me the hook or the ovation.
It's my world that I want to take a little pride in,
My world, and it's not a place I have to hide in.
Life's not worth a damn,
'Til you can say, "Hey world, I am what I am."
I am what I am,
I don't want praise, I don't want pity.
I bang my own drum,
Some think it's noise, I think it's pretty.
And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff'rent angle?
Your life is a sham 'til you can shout out loud
I am what I am!
I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
There's one life, and there's no return and no deposit;
One life, so it's time to open up your closet.
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say,
"Hey world, I am what I am!"

Hey Nabisco Kid!
As for me, I really don't want to be anyone else because I find me pretty interesting. I find me living whatever life I want to live. And I don't think anybody else could do that for me, except ME! Hahaha!!!

What I think is that we are joining all of the energies that we have within us. All of our potentials to be in our own ways of being but grasping the synchronicities of those feelings within to those we have seen in others. So, not necessarily wanting to become someone else but to become all of what we have within us. It is like joiing all of our parts in expression.

You know, like how many of us know that we hold this bold energy within us and yet we don't normally express it. Or we have this knowing that we could sing to the top of our lungs and yet we don't in the physical. Or how many of us dance in our dreams? I think it is just a joining of all that we experience joy in and that it is not necessarily prevalent for us to express it in the physical form but to appreciate it even more in our "minds".

I know I was always the world's greatest ice skater when I watch ice skating but I never had a fancy to actually get on the ice and "do it". Because God knows the one time I did get on the ice, my ankles buckled and I wiped out old women and children on my way to get back to the bench. Hahaha!!! Yeah, that is a true story. So, I then just relent to my minds eye and allowed me to skate there. And, by the way, I was fantastic.

I think that to me is what this is all about. It is not always that we have to live our fantasies in our reality but that we truly appreciate them in our daydreams. Or something like that. I don't know, I'm just spewing.

But all I know is that it feels good. Loves to you all, Deb
