Well, where does it all begin?
This identity thing?
Initially, from the security of the cradle, alarmingly under daily threat of loss?
Learning to trust the parent, and then looking for more of their like to protect and strengthen the tender years…
Feeling that safety in numbers develops and promotes identity…
Then establishing a community in which to prosper.
Finally, searching for that human pleasure, “Dignity”, for association with a story to take proudly to the grave.
