Day 1108: Human

I’m a

who has written over a thousand blog posts about being

Right now, I’m going to check how many times I’ve used the word

over the last three years in a blog post title.

I am having some very

reactions and feelings, because this is the first time “human” has made it to a post title. I would have sworn that I’d written a post titled “We’re Human Beings, Not Human Doings. ”

Well, there’s  no time like the present to write a human post.

 

I’m now wondering what the word

means to you.  If  you had to choose three words to define

IMG_8504

what would they be?

The first three words that occur to me are

imperfect

complicated

mortal

Are those good enough synonyms for the word

IMG_8505

in your mind? Do those three words capture, at all,  what makes us human?

I’m guessing that my readers will do a much better job picking three “human” words. After all, I’m only human.

Do any of the other pictures I quickly snapped yesterday help us define “human”?

It’s only human that I’m curious about what you think, feel, and choose to express.

Human thanks to all the humans who helped me create this all-too-human post and to you — of course! — for bringing your humanity here, today.
