Hi, You.

You, you guys, you all, y’all, you’ens, all y’all… yes, YOU.

I don’t have to say “If you’re reading this…” because I know you are. Thank you for that. Ironically, that’s one assertion I can make with certainty. If you want to quibble with it, you’ll only prove it’s true.

“You” have been relegated by language and literature to second person, but “I” am commanded to put “you” before “me.” We’re in this together, you and I. Singular and unique, or plural and ubiquitous – you are right here in front of me, and you are everywhere. You matter.

And I am your “you.”

  1. I’m reminded of a Beatles song: ” I am I, and you are you, and we are altogether,” or something like that lol.

    Found your YOU post Uniquely yours!

    Yours truly,

    You know who.
