i'm with her
We define ourselves and each other in so many different ways - mother, father, husband, wife, child, adult - by gender, orientation, race, profession, nationality, community, and so forth. I won't speak for anyone else, but I believe that no one fits easily into any kind of a box or wears only a few labels. Human beings are too complex for that, and I think most of us only get hints of our abilities and potential, and are happiest living on continuums of experience rather than being pigeonholed. I know this is true for me, and yet I am wordy and I do like definitions, so here are a few of mine. I keep these on my blog banner and I enjoy identifying with them: painter, reader, writer, bookseller. On facebook and on my painting blog I add one more to that list: generally happy person. I am also: an idealist, daydreamer, romantic, sister, daughter, wife, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, property owner, small business owner, nature lover, peace lover, cat lover, tree hugger, pantheist, feminist, liberal. Democrat. Mainer. American.
And tomorrow, another: I am a VOTER. Please, be one too! Please vote! It's so important!
I am voting for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
One last definition: I am Sarah Faragher, and I approved this message.
