Consider for a moment your interior world. Your ongoing thoughts, dreams, feelings, and imagination. Consider all the things you love that you cannot express in words. That certain way of standing that feels comfortable to you. The overwhelming feelings that flood your soul, whether you want them to or not. The joy that bubbles up and the anger that seizes you. The personal ways you care for your body and soul and the things you will never tell another person.

If not, don’t worry. Read away and imagine what it is like to be me.
