The self I seem to be today

November 14th, 2006

Arlo Guthrie performed a concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on November 10, 2006. At some point during the show, host Dan Reed quoted Arlo Guthrie’s website quote of the day:

The me I used to think of as being myself
has slowly been replaced by the self I seem to be today.
— Arlo Guthrie

Then, Dan asked Arlo: I think it deserves an explanation, perhaps!? And, Arlo explained:

Well, that’s nice of you. You know, if these things need an explanation there’s no point in doing them. I would have just put the explanation in and forgot the quote.

Dan: End of quote.

Me, my lies, and I

April 10th, 2006

Who am I? — Of course, trivially I am I. But who says so? Who is I and who is I not? Can I trust this I?

Who am I? Who is me?
Am I the sum of my history, or am I more than the sum of it? Or less? I keep forgetting. Nature or nurture? Are my hopes and wishes part of me?

What about the collection of aches and pains that consume my body? How old am I? Old enough to kick my father’s butt? Am I ready to accept my rheumatic disorders? Or more? Where do I draw the line? On my birthday? When I die? Does death end my life, and me?

What have we forgotten about ourselves? There is this and that which I am proud of, what I believe in, and those I love. And there is everything else. I am the one to decide. So, it depends. I depend on me?

People keep asking: Who are you? — I’d like to answer honestly: I do not know. And I do, because there again is this I. I says about I that I does not know.

Maybe this is why trivial is not derived from a broad way but from three ways crossing at one point: The I that is me, the I that says I, and all that is not I.
Who said that?

About me

I am sorry, you are reading the wrong page. This page does tell absolutely nothing about me. Of course, this is an aporia as is my whole blog.

Who’s that me anyway?
