PROMPTuesday #69 – Tell Me Who Are You? Who? Who?

DaGoddess @ 11:40

Last week’s PROMPT sat in Deb’s comment section by sheer dint of my own laziness. week, I’m actually going to try to do something with her question beyond a quick response. For ill or for good, here we go:

1. Who are you?

2. Where did you come from?

3. Where are you going?

I am, I am…I think I am…dare I go all Nacho Libre? No, I suppose not. I am…just me. I’ve never tried to be anything other than who I am. I’ve always just tried to be the best me I can be. Even when I’ve come up short in that respect, I was completely myself. I guess that means that I’m perfectly imperfect. Flawed in the most innate and honest way I can be. I live, I love, I hurt, I cry, I try, I succeed, I fail, I try again, I just keep going. I pray fear doesn’t hold me back. I pray I do as little damage to others along the way as possible. I pray. Yes, I do pray a lot. I put a lot of stock in those prayers because I’m human and entirely too fallible. I would hope God is along to help guide me.

I come from…well, I believe I was asked and I answered that back in PROMPT #28. More literally — because I’m having a little fun and because I’m a smart ass — I am originally from Ohio. Cleveland area. From a family of circus performers. Okay, maybe not circus performers. But we do manage to act oddly at times. We do a weird dance of drawing together and pushing apart, like many families, I suppose. Sometimes I feel like I fit, somtimes I don’t.

Where am I going? Forward. Other than that, the Witness Protection Program won’t let me say.

So, who the hell are you?


  1. I love where you’re going? Can I go, too? They’ll never find us! :yay:

  3. Love your destination! Change is the only constant… if we’re not going forward, then we must be retreating.

  4. No retreat!

  5. Very funny!!! Nice treatment of the prompt.

    How is your situation working out these days – you were having to move, right?

  6. Cleveland? Me too. But my parents were hillbillies from W. Virginia. Not Circus performers.

  7. While we may not have been circus performers, it did often feel like we were a traveling circus. Or maybe I just felt weird and clownlike
