OK. Maybe it’s not “The” big question. But it’s certainly one of them.
“Who are you?”
And it’s cousin…
“Who am I?”
I think that at some point in our lives everyone has to have been asked the former and asked themselves the latter. I certainly have. Rather often, in fact.
In 1982 a move came out called The World According to Garp. I was drawn in by the idea of the movie, more than the actual content. At its core was the premise that each person perceives the world in their own way. The truth of my world and the truth of yours might be very different, even though we might seem to have a similar existence on the outside.
This is where I think I’ll begin.
