Why is it that at an interview when we are told: tell me about yourself, or when we meet someone new and are asked: What do you do? What are you?
We almost always reply with: I’m so and so. I graduated from whatever whatever and I work in this and that. Why? Why does it have to be like this?
I’m guilty of this just as much as anyone else is. My soul wags its soulful finger at me, scolding me – that is not who.you.are. And as a wise lion once said (Mufasa, I’m talking about Mufasa): Remember who you are.
So I’m going to tell you that I am someone who enjoys staring at the moon, my eyes wandering around to locate the stars that form constellations that I never learned. I am someone that is trying to learn acoustic guitar so I can romance myself on a rock at a park to live out my childish dreams. I am someone who wants to travel to immerse themselves into every culture that I come into contact with. I want to develop, expand, enhance my mind. I am someone who wants to give to those the things that I have received by no great achievement of my own. I am someone who wants to live in a world that is driven by passion for the things we believe in and not the paths that are chosen for us by those who want to trap our soulful souls.
I am Nauman. And I want to spend my life, wandering through it. Because I want to know who I am, always.
Do you know who you are?

Let’s all get to know one another!
