Uncharted territory.

Someone wrote…

Every once in a while, I reflect upon myself and am struck by the uncharted territory. When I don’t know myself, how can everyone else look at my face and claim to see any part of the real me?

How do you show people the “real” you, if you don’t know all of it yourself? Do we ever know “all” of ourselves, or any of ourselves?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    If anyone can know "all" of me, it's me.

    I'm working on that, and — by definition — I won't ever finish the attempt. But a good try is worth a whole lot :)
