Saying it aloud!
… the thoughts I usually don’t.
I have always been curious about names. Why things and people have the names they do? Are their names reminiscent of something else? Do they have a muse? Do they have meaning?
So, when it came time to christen my blog, a fair bit of thought went into it. I mulled over what I wanted my blog to represent. I realized the persona I have on the blog is much different from my real life person. I am much more vocal, much less prone to being shy here. I can get sappy, be verbose, get sentimental, be critical, express angst, shed virtual tears without being encumbered by the mechanics of how to do it.
Thus was born ‘Saying it aloud… the thoughts I usually don’t’. The blog URL is a play on the same words as well.
But, as I got thinking about the name and the tagline, I realize that over the years, the habit of talking about things out loud has seeped into my everyday life. I am comfortable with expressing and accepting affection these days. I have learned to speak my mind when something is not OK with me. I have also learned to be OK with silences.
Perhaps then, a change in title is in order? You tell me.
