"Become who you are"

I first read Pindar in High School, after stumbling across that quotation (which the Nietzschians among you no doubt recognize) in an academic journal.

Now I really had no business reading Pindar, Academic Journals or Nietzsche in High School. I was really too young, and on some level still regarded 'becoming who I was' as the quest for the most authetic punk-rock boots. And so the quotation nagged at me, a constant reminder of things beyond my ken.

Looking back now, I can see this was a my Tragic Flaw - I really had no idea who I was - I didn't really even understand the question, or how it might be played out in any real way.

But I'm at work now, and shouldn't be blogging.
