The Twin Thing

Best friends

 Sharing a treat

Sharing a kiss

Always holding hands

Sharing a Little Sister

Even when they fight, they always work it out.
Twin Style.

I'm linking up with the wonderful Trish of My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday.

Will the Real WhoaMamma Please Stand Up...

There is a scene from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice in Wonderland' where Absolom the pipe-smoking caterpillar turns to the bewildered Alice and asks:

"Whoooooooooooooooooo .... are youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu...?"

Alice, in a state of confusion, replies:

"I knew who I was this morning, but I've changed several times since then."

Ah Alice, I know the feeling.

Sometimes I feel like I am a thousand souls leading a thousand lives.

Nothing and everything.

The product of hundreds and thousands of years of love-making from my ancestors. Their DNA weaving a tapestry in my veins. All these people in my blood-line came together and now... I am Here.

I am as ancient as the ruins in Athens yet I'm just beginning.

I am Mummy. A beacon and an example to my girls.

I am Agapi, the Wife. My love unconditional and my support unwavering.

I am Big Sister Jess who parents and guides my sweet, precious siblings.

A Daughter and Granddaughter of migrants who will carry on the legacies and family traditions.

A friend for Life.

A smile to let you know you make me happy.

A shoulder to cry on.

A hug of gratitude.

The first lips to kiss you good morning, the last lips to kiss you goodnight.

The girl who wants to dig for treasure.

The woman dressed in black that wants to paint the town (and her shoes, lips and nails) red.

I am equal parts kick-ass and demure.

I am a little bit o' this:

With a dash of this:

and, maybe, just a hint of this:

I want to glisten, yet I hide.

I like quiet yet I want to scream.

I'd like to laze in a hammock and sprint up a mountain.

I love to sing but close my mouth if there's an audience.

I am the People Pleaser and the Do-Gooder.

I Make Things Happen.

I am undying in my loyalty and my love has no bounds.

I am lazy like a cat but can be fierce as a lion.

Romantic daydreamer.

Kinky vixen.

Beware of the Quiet Ones.

I want to go crazy and dance.

I long for adventure but want to take them alone.

I'd offer you anything I have if you need it more.

I am a cherry in a bowl of bananas.

I'm a Keeper of Secrets and a bearer of Truths.

I come alive when inspired.

Sometimes my Spirit feels too grand for my body.

I'm the licker of cake-bowls and picker of flowers.


I will stare at rainbows till they disappear like ghosts in the golden sky.

I am a journey and I'm enjoying the ride.

Who are You?
