TITLE: On Being Yourself AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: October 26, 2005 5:23 PM DESC: ----- BODY: From my bedside reading this week:
In an age where there is much talk of "being yourself" I reserve to myself the right to forget about being myself, since in any case there is very little chance of my being anybody else. Rather it seems to me that when one is intent on "being himself" he runs the risk of impersonating a shadow.
