Many years ago I had a conversation with my husband about who we are. His argument was that we are defined by what we do. I agreed to a point, but kept asking ‘But who are you? What makes you you?’ We’re still chuckling about it.
What makes you You?
Here’s my take:
The beginning: I was born in Romania, in the middle of Transylvania. My childhood was idyllic, despite the existing communist regime. I credit that to my parents’ ability to keep the magic alive.
Writing. Occasionally it comes out so right it makes me feel smug. Other times it’s the opposite. The moral is: keep on walking.
Being a mom. The joy, the ups and downs, the beautiful adventure. By the way, living with teenagers is not as bad as they say.
Proud member of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Yes, it exists. You get a pin too.
Because science. I have a degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Please come back. I’ll show you the fun side of it. Better yet, let’s chat about your future science-based writing projects.
Dog’s name is Poppy. We hike, run and snuggle together. That’s how I put the world back together.
