Susan Ito is a comma. Apparently, I am too!

You Are a Comma

You are open minded and extremely optimistic.

You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.

You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.

(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark

I like the thought of being a comma, a brief pause between two thoughts, that moment of rest between the inhale and exhale. Although I must say I've been especially enamored of semi-colons lately--maybe because I need a deeper pause these days. Do you have a favorite punctuation mark?

My friend Elizabeth Austen wrote a gorgeous poem about punctuation when we were at Antioch together. You can hear it in her own voice if you click the third track here.

I love semi-colons! But I love even more that you are a comma. :)

I too am in lust with the semi-colon; don't know why, just am.
