I was all set to share a very dark and broody post about lost loves and love found from this stormy February day at my home on the coast, but that thought trajectory just went out the window with my introduction to this fantastic website:
I have just discovered that my husband and I are the only ones in the United States of America to legally have the combination of our first and last names. Strangely unique?! Yep, that would be us. 🙂
This site is a delightful find to play around with. It was unearthed from one of the magic minds that I get to check in on from time to time. The way my friend Rusty sees the world makes me laugh and makes me think…the perfect combination.
His latest brilliant musings, ruminations and observations can be found here (read at your own risk of laughing while being enlightened):
“They say no two snowflakes are alike. Except for snowflake doppelgangers, a very rare strain of snowflake.”
“Declaring what you want out of life suggests an expectation that it cater to you. You don’t have to order it — the buffet is open.”
“The pursuit of enlightenment involves no accumulation, but only the ridding of our assumptions.“
“Crest says on the label that it fights cavities and tartar. That’s what I need is a toothpaste that gets violent with my mouth.”
Really, no matter what our names, there is a deep uniqueness that we all have that contributes such beauty to the planting of the garden as we share the whole.
(If you so feel like it, report back in the comments how many people of your name it turns out are floating around out there! –there are 4 with my dad’s name, 9 with the last person I dated before meeting N, 29 for my favorite elementary school teacher, 14 with the name of the boy I first kissed…the fun of checking is endless!)
(And as just another aside, I have always thought it would be fun to track down all the babies that were born within the few hours around the time I was at the same hospital and to see how powerfully birth sign tendencies hold up under the spotlight of detailed examination!)
