Please Be Yourself Today . . .


I woke up early this morning and felt . . . well shall I say “out of sorts” somehow. Over the years I am now realizing that often when I “feel” this way, it is because I am attempting to be someone else’s definition of Alan.

So this morning I went for a long walk in the desert and allowed the quietness to wash over me. It was during this walk that I was reminded of the following quote by E.E. Cummings:

“To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight. Never stop fighting!”

Please be yourself today . . . and every new day as well.

  1. Haven’t located your posts for a while, Alan, and was delighted to see this one. Seems like you’ve switched over to a blog (or else I’m slow on the uptake). Congratulations to you; you are needed on a blog!
