What does it mean when you aren't famous.

WHO ARE YOU?

by suepace

Do I know you? she asked. Are you important?

I'm sure I've seen your work. Or read it. Or heard you talk.

I'm sure I know you from somewhere. Were you in that movie?

Who are you? Please, you have to tell me.

Don't go away. I need to know. Who are you?

I am no one, I finally say.

No, she says. I must apologize. I thought I knew you but...I didn't.

Her face is wet with tears. You are more than a nobody. We all are....as long as someone else notices.

And I notice you.

The Award wasn't what I expected.
Award is a word we seldom hear in real life

My story is based in an incident that happened at a writer's conference. I was asked (by one of the participants) "Are you someone important" and all I could say was "No, I'm just a writer". That was a long time ago and I hope that now my response to that question would be both the same and different. Hopefully I would simply say, "I'm a writer" and let the one who asked the question draw her own conclusions.

Thank you for your comment. I remember my own youth and the youth of my children. I see my grandchildren struggling to matter. In my various jobs, I came across so many people who weren't seen..now, I try to see those "invisible" ones...if only to give a smile and nod.

Back in the early 70s Henry Fonda and Terence Hill starred in a movie, "My Name is Nobody". What you wrote needed to be written. Self-identity is a major "thing" around these pages. I am surely thankful that I did not have to go through what these kids are going through. Great post!!!!
