I Am

So a few weeks ago, in the second or third teaching seminar that I had, we did this thing called, "I Am From" and you were supposed to write down things that signified where you were from and who you are. They could be general things, or they could be worded so that only you knew what you were talking about. After some examples, we were told to do our own, and then, if you wanted to, share. I didn't get to share mine with my seminar, and I've been thinking about sharing with you fine people for a while. So, here it is.

I am from
hills, fenced-off fields, and TTB love
and old ragged apple tree, and a 50 gallon drum

I am from
west winds, piled leaves and soccer
flopping water and "may I help you?"

I am from
a large family tree
geographic closeness, "get away from me"
the ultimate age gap
"where are you going?" and living on the center line.

(This was all that I got down in the five or so minutes we were given to do this exercise, but I think it's more than enough to convey where I'm from. And what I am.)

And, what's scary - is that most of it applies to me as well. Oye!

That's because you're my sister.
