This was my defense against older sibling taunting when I was young. Although stomped through tears of dismay, defending my species against attack, it has turned out to be a remarkably solid pillar of my personal style.
First, I have been known to perform at a level that should burn me out. And eventually does. I have come to understand that as inhumane treatment of myself.
Second, I defy categorizing. I am unique. But I didn’t have the words back then. I’ve spent a worded life voicing my meaning.
And finally, as evidenced by my sporadic blogging: I cannot be ruled by such a thing as routine. I can neither do the same thing day in and day out, nor the same way. A recipe is just a suggestion. Getting from here to there an adventure in variety. Yet I have, for the past ten years, managed to hold regular writing groups on a schedule, even starting and ending pretty much on time … most of the time …
So, while it turns out I AM human, after all, I still defy definition.
Thanks to WordPress Daily Prompt – what is your personal style? – for today’s inspiration.

Yes, you are a real human being…and also Sarah.
Whew, glad we got THAT established 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Rita. Brings a bit o’ warmth into our arctic ambiance up north here . . .
Sounds like me – Gemini!
Really? So interesting . . . before birth, I was given two names because my parents thought I might be twins. Hmmmmmm . . .

Keep on defying definition Sarah!! Love your story and attitude. My stepdaughter used to call me “her Sara” which I always found endearing and adorable, much better than a “stepmother.” 😉
Yes, that’s a lovely name for you-in-her-life. My stepdaughter used to say she had three moms: her biological mom, her step-mom (he remarried again) and the mom of her heart (that was me)! Thanks for stopping by – and happy new year to you!
Aw, that gave me little goosebumps! So sweet–and funny coincidence, that’s what I call my stepdaughter–the daughter of my heart 🙂 Love is all around
No way!!! We ARE all connected, aren’t we?!!! Thanks for that, Sara, it made my day. Have a heart-filled weekend.
