I have rarely doubted my own existence; I leave that mind game for people more equipped for it. I do, however, have proof that I am I, so to speak.

(An island in the setting sun, after the bump)

Proof:

l.i.a.w.

l.i.a.w.
lost inside a whirlwind
spinning faster than i can
not knowing where i stand
lost inside a whirlwind
worried dancing free-fall mind
puppet strings invisible but old
lost inside a whirlwind
reasons clouded judgments foul
endings forgetting beginnings pain
lost inside a whirlwind
beginnings forgetting endings pain
this ain't kansas toto
lost inside a whirlwind
l.i.a.w.
...

She wrote this about me. There is no other Lia Whirlwind.

Just me.

Alone in the dark.

Don't be scared.

It's only fun until you die.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    ... find that place of calm;
    that center around which
    appearances fly,
    around which time hurries
    and space changes shape;
    that place of refuge
    from the storms,
    that place of quiet
    and stillness
    and peace
    and clarity;
    that place where the dance
    is effortless
    and joyful;
    find that place of calm,
    and rest there;
    find that quiet space,
    and breathe there;
    breathing,
    healing,
    feeling,
    energy flowing,
    filling, rejuvenating,
    balancing;
    find that space of quiet,
    of simply breathing,
    of simply being,
    at peace;
    find that place of calm,
    and rest there
