3483 : To be invisible

 I don't wear it as a badge of honor, but I am quite "normal" in terms of most identity. Like I am heterosexual, I am able-bodied, of a fairly innocuous "race" in India.......point I am making is, I dont come up in any identity conversation.

And yet, I know I am distinctly off the beaten path. My health, my sub-altern choices all contribute to making me no fit in. I am an atheist, jazz lover, slightly creative person with a deep need for silence. I don't fit into family life or even social endeavors.

"Work" works just beautifully for me - because it allows me to be very good at what I do, without having to put an act on.

The rest of it. My failures, my traumas, my health, my pain....all of these make for some strange identity moments.

In recent years, identity and power have dominated some parts of my meditation.
