name change/game change

With an ever-expanding collection of rabbit-adorned books growing on my bookshelf it was a no-brainer coming up with a new name for my blog which for the longest has been called NOTANOCTOPUS, until today. Trying to think back 4+ years ago as to why my then-self would name a blog that, I can only imagine that particular sequence of the letters created an interesting beat to me; it was fun to say not-an-oc-to-puss; it sounded Greek, whatever that means, and the word itself represented (in a deeper sense) the facade keeping an inquiring mind from the real nitty-gritty which often hides behind smile. An octopus, for instance, a majestic billowy-tentacled sea beast; they adorn everything from stationary to well-pampered earlobes after a little molding with 14K, but when you really think about it they're squishy, with eight arms and suckers and beaks, though they are known for their intelligence...honestly, I don't know where I'm going with this.

The more I think about it NOTANOCTOPUS was a great name; I'll miss it. Change is the issue here, really, and my effort to embrace it. Some old mystic on a mountaintop once said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But I'm sure if that mystic fell in love with and married a no-nonsense type of gal, he might change his tune to, "New curtains might be nice to accentuate the sunbeams passing through my life." And a good attitude like that is tough to disparage.
