Sometimes I get asked for a biography of myself.
Is there really such a thing as a biography?
After all, we are not really individuals. We are more like aspen colonies, all grown together but hiding the togetherness underground.
What is a biography but an alibi?
What is a biography but a ceremony?
Who gets to have a biography and who barely even gets counted in the statistics?
One thing at least is sure: that you can’t write about yourself without writing about others, since the comic fact is that we all have otherness inside ourselves and live inside other people too.
Biography is a comedy that we rarely know how to laugh at.
