As a philosopher, I may be pictured as having head in clouds - and, in case that is true, I'll write only this sentence to see how this posting here in PsychologyToday works; but I also write more, I now see...

Of course, the above sentence is self-referential, for it talks about itself.  It is benignly self-referential - in contrast to famous philosophical examples such as 'This sentence is not true'.  Well, is it true or not?  It worried one ancient Greek philosopher so much that he couldn't eat or drink - and so he just wasted away.  Of course, we all do that eventually.

Some pop songs are bafflingly self-referential.  Recall, 'I can't get started' which, of course, got started.

Well, this is getting started.
