Lets see of we can define who Dan is…..

I am not a country boy, I am not a redneck, I am not a cowboy or a city boy, and hell I don’t think I was much of a soldier, so who and what am I? I need to find that answer I have tried to be all of those people I have listed above but I don’t fit in any one of those categories, bottom line I don’t know who I am, I am just me, can I be a combination of all of those things and still have a sense of my own identity? I am not clearly defined, take my music choices for example, I am listening to George Strait and can sing ever word to every song note for note, and yet this morning I was listening to Joss Stone a female blues singer. Later I was listening to Lindsey Stirling a violinist with a techno back beat then I was listening to Great White, see even my music choices don’t fit into a certain profile or genre if you please, what and who am I, that is the thought for this moment.

  1. Um…you’re Dan Kline. (There are those others, but you know what I mean.) Dan Kline who was sent to war; Dan Kline who hunts for food; Dan Kline who listens to Joss Stone and Iron Maiden; Dan Kline who screams at the world and takes his son to the zoo. You aren’t these things – they are what make you.

    Or I might just be rambling.

    • so in a word i am the combined experience of all those things, each part makes up the whole of me?

      • There was a you, of course, that existed before all of these things; there is a core you that will always be Dan. The experiences of your life combine to shape who you become; some are in your control, others are not. What happens to you in your childhood leaves an indelible influence on you; what happens to you in times of stress and shock equally affects you. Each part of you completes the Dan who is already there, and there is never a label for that; it is simply you.

        I don’t know if that makes any sense.

Tell me what you think.
