When I’m myself

What does it mean to be you, truly you? Who are you when nobody is watching? When do you feel the most you? Who are you when you feel free of all the expectations?

For me it’s telling stories.

I remember telling stories to my fellow kindergarteners, making it up as I went. It always fascinated me that we can create a completely new world in our heads and bring it here, show it to others. With words, paintings, movies, music. Our creativity will never cease to amaze me.

Being in my room, sitting at my desk or in my reading chair, it’s when I’m completely myself. Telling or re-telling stories, reading, bringing different worlds together. It’s me, it always was and I want it to always be.
