Artists, as we’ve often been told, need to discover their brand. One way to do this is by answering questions about yourself.
Some of you may have seen the following before. I think it says a lot about how we see ourselves. These are my answers.

If I were a month, I’d be November.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Thursday.
If I were an object, I’d be an iron skillet.
If I were a facial expression, I’d be pensive.
If I were a song, I’d be “21 Guns.”
If I were a pair of shoes, I would be sturdy shoes, laced-up, covering your toes kind of sturdy. Umm . . . . steel-toed work boots?
If I were a time of day, I'd be ten pm.
If I were a planet, I’d be Venus (because Venus is covered with clouds).
If I were a sea animal, I’d be a dolphin.
If I were a direction, I’d be lost.
If I were a piece of furniture, I'd be a bookcase.
If I were a liquid, I’d be Diet Coke.
If I were a gemstone, I’d be a ruby.
If I were a tree, I’d be a Weeping Willow.
If I were a tool, I’d be a hammer.
If I were a flower, I’d be wisteria.
If I were a kind of weather, I would be fog.
If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a violin.
If I were a color, I’d be red.
If I were an emotion, I’d be nostalgic.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a peach.
If I were a book, I’d be David Copperfield.
If I were a sound, I’d be wind chimes.
If I were an element, I’d be mercury.
If I were a car, I’d be a 1945 red Ford pickup.
If I were a movie, I’d be Old Yeller.
If I were a food, I’d be cornbread.
If I were a place, I’d be the ocean.
If I were a material, I’d be muslin.
If I were a taste, I’d be salty.
If I were a scent, I’d be honeysuckle.
If I were a body part, I’d be hands.
What would your answers be?
