Popeye

"Popeye is about an image of, 'I am what I am.' Kind of a symbol of self-acceptance that you have to embrace who you are. Popeye has spinach. Spinach brings about his transcendence, and brings about his power. That's what art [is]. Art is our spinach." ~ the artist Jeff Koons

Use the art and Koons's words to think about yourself. What does "I am what I am" mean for you? Who are you and how do you define yourself? Consider what is the thing (or things) that brings about your power and transcendence. Popeye had spinach. Koons has art. What is your spinach?
