i normally just post my canned description about me that i had to come up with for an artist bio. That won’t do anymore.
The saying is, “What you say about yourself defines you.” I have been largely defined by my past then. What is the present me?
What do i look like? How do i feel? How does the air feel filling my lungs and pulsing through my arteries and veins?
Who am i?
Today i am not sure i can answer that question, but i have ideas, glimpses, moments of clarity.
i am me. i am dahlia and all the other names there are of me.
My name dahlia is said to be Swedish/Scandinavian in origin. The flower that has my name is the national flower of Mexico according to ehow.com. My flower is also filled with symbolism it says…
The symbolic meaning of the dahlia in the Victorian language of flowers has survived. When given as a gift, the dahlia flower expresses sentiments of dignity and elegance. It is also the symbol of a commitment and bond that lasts forever.
My friends say i am loyal. i have a dignity and elegance all my own but is that all there is to me?
i love forever. When i tell you i love you, it does not waver, does not change and does not lessen with time much to the annoyance of my other intimate relations. =) It seems they got the commitment and bond part right.
i used to be able to say i am your friend forever, and i am, but with age i have learned that some friends must be kept at a distance. It has been a painful lesson.
So these are things i know about me:
i am complex
i am abstract
i am beautiful
i am loyal
i am dignity
i am elegance
i am commitment
i am love
i am from the valley and i love the mountains
i am part sea
i am part wind
i am part spring
i am part winter
i am all autumn
i am of the stars
i am an artist
i am a poet
i am a singer
i am a lover
i am a mother
i am a child
i am a wife
i am a partner
that is undeniable, irrefutable, irrepressible, unapologetic, real.
Bienvenue, Welcome. Nice to make your acquaintance.
