Who Am I?
This blog has been an interesting project for me. I love the opportunity to share my thoughts with the world but the reactions from readers are most appealing. I’ve been elusive about myself - and thats in my nature in reality. But I certainly have revealed much if you only look a little deeper. From early on in my blogging career I found comments from people trying to fit me into a mould. Trying to guess who I am and what my status is. Even to the extent of being asked if I am “so and so” – people I’ve never heard of. I’m thoroughly amused by the investigative questions. Even in my “real” life I’m constantly encountering people who try to complete the puzzle. Often times I'm like a shape-shifter, able to blend in anywhere, I adapt to my surroundings and I'm a local wherever I travel to! Of course where I come from has an impact on who I am, but it doesn’t define me. Where I’ve been and where I’m going equally augment my personality and my being. But I can’t be labelled and I can’t be sorted and filed. I’m ever changing, a citizen of the world and being a desert demon means I’m unbound by any place, space or time. Ever moving, ever exploring, ever discovering, full of mystery and intrigue. Like shifting sands that never settle, I'm always on the move - following the wind, chasing the mirage. Such is the life of the Bedouin!
