First entry - maybe last
I didn’t join LJ to write entries. But isn’t that supposed to be the whole point? Umm, maybe. Instead I am here to be able to read entries in a particular restricted group after several years of being an anonymous reader. We’ll see where it goes from there, if anywhere.

You may be wondering about my username. It took me several weeks to come up with it. The heck, you say! Several weeks for that mumble? Well, what is a username? To some maybe anything will do: what you had for supper, the song that just came out of the radio, whatever. But to others, me included, a username is another name, and a name can be very important. The Bible is full of examples of this. Who am I? Who do I want to appear to be?
  • My own unique self
  • Somewhat anonymous
  • A little bit serious
  • A little bit fun
  • Positive to inspire me to strive to be my best self
  • My present self, but also my historic and future selves
  • Not already claimed by some other LJ user (practical!)
Who am I? I made a list, including my origins, relationships, career, interests, philosophy, world-view. I generated some possible names and plugged them into LJ. That eliminated some potentially good ones. It also left some possible good ones, but nothing quite clicked.

Then last night at choir practice we were singing a warm-up:
             ma – meh – mee – mo – moo. (1-3-5-3-1)
And something clicked. There were my initials and references to a couple of my important life roles and behind it the connection to music. And it sounded kind of funky. Ok, that’s still a bit vague, but maybe you get the idea. And now you know a little bit about me.
