" I Yam what I Yam " is pretty complicated stuff . Our nameless God says just call me "I AM " and Descartes said, " I think. Therefore I am." but Popeye the sailor man is an equal challenge for us. Moreover he has to rely from strength outside of his skin because he cannot battle his big hairy bully or protect his anima without a can or two of spinach. And so do we as we find out, usually painfully, that we need a tonic of spinach from time to time when our Bluto appears or Olive is threatened, usually both.
I may say blithely, " I am what I am. " but wholeness is an elusive state and for me it includes Bluto and Olive Oyl and the great I AM, who is my giver of spinach.
