My Ill-Fitting Nutshell

I am a person of dichotomies. I am at turns both egotistical and self-conscious. I am obscenely open and insanely private. I am extremely intelligent and yet painfully stupid and naive. I am both questioning and gullible. I am fierce yet soft-hearted, have a giant temper yet so very much love to give. Oblivious and empathetic. And sometimes all of the above at the same time. I am however always passionate, always open to new things and adventures of all sizes, and always exploring.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then, I contradict myself,
I am large, I contain multitudes.

I am passionate about learning; I eat knowledge in all forms from waffles to protein bars to broccoli (though actual protein bars are ridiculous!). Reading, painting, sewing, stained glass, writing, guitar, I find myself drawn to all things creative. I dabble in everything but am master of nothing. I try not to let that small fact inhibit the enjoyment experienced in partaking of the activities but my ego does occasionally get in the way.

Someone once described me as a silly tree-hugging, yoga-doing, car-singing weirdo. I will leave it to you to decide how accurate that is.

  1. So tempted to ask which one’s you in that picture … but I won’t. Anyway, everyone’s a weirdo, aren’t they? Or is it just people who comment on each other’s blogs?

  2. I think the only answer to that question is “maybe”!

    And I’m the one with the dark hair…..

  3. Happy seasonal festive period! Hope you have a great time.

  4. From a fellow tree hugging car singer…liked the blog!

  5. Savasana, I’ve been updating my blog and saw your old comments on my About page. It made me wonder what happened to you. Hope you’re OK.
