Well I had a run of names and they still linger all over the internet, Teddie, Teddy (after my passion for collecting antique teddy bears), then I went to Knotamuse, Knotamused, because I couldn't write a darn thing really.  Then I became Chablis, then onto Chardonnay, almost like I was into CB or something right?  Oh, there were many, and the poetry is still all over the place in all those names.  I even found what I thought was someone stealing my poem and it was me!

My friend Willow came out to visit, and when I showed her I gotten into poetry she picked me a new name.  She found me always very mysterious, and impulsive she said, and suggested Mysterious One at first, then we changed it to Mysteria, and it has been with me ever since.  I often think of changing it to my real name, ahem ... since I am now published - thanks to RON! but my real name is Sharon and we already have one famous Sharon at this site

actually... i found this site some how when i was searching for something else... and i decided to join, and this just popped in my mind and i thought it sounded cool... black & white horizon... i guess i could say that i live on the coast, and the horizon has always amazed me, how it ends, but yet it goes on so far... and how it's so straight... and the word horizon just sounds neat... and i like black and white... i don't mean old grayscale movies, but simple, clean, strict, kind of straight black and white...

Cool thread . . .

I have had this screen ever since I came on the web - I use it everywhere because it is me - truly

"Littlewing" - Jimi Hendrix - go listen please . . . speaks of someone who lives in fairytales, running about the clouds, sweet but quite unsure of her place in the world but always there to listen and give of herself even when she is troubled - always with a smile . . .
in the end Jimi tells her:

"Fly on, Littlewing"

and that is why I use littlewing - a lot to learn - a lot to lend and a need to fly (small "l" - havent earned my wings yet)

(besides the fact I am a huge Hendrix freak and adore angels, birds and wings and this tune is quite amazing - the guitar riff in the intro
- Oh Mannnn)

xxoo

In a nutshell. It fits!

Susan Elaine Allen. SEA to me. It fits since you like the rain (being all wet) and being a northwest boy so do I. My momma named me and I always liked it. Besides I suck at pretending to be somebody else. I'm next to SEA again tonight. COOL!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Now that's a good question... I think it was something quite random. I changed because I was having problems on the site with hiding my identity to a few others who knew me personally... all I know is I want to make it VIOLIST. Oh well... so that's my story

Hope I haven't taken up too much of your time.

I wanted something short and sweet and something that would reflect my heritage.  I am a single, hispanic mother of three girls and mom makes four so I went with "quatro" "4".  The correct spelling of the word four in spanish is "cuatro", but I am an American and my children are bi-racial and being from Texas (Tex-Mex) I chose to use the "q".  I also much prefer to use lower case letters.

too long a story and really pretty boring along with the fact I am not so good at typing when I am in a hurry...lol...

One of these days I think I'll change it... to something more in line with my talents, soon as I figure out what those really are.

Well, I wanted to register here and couldn't come up with anything creative so I just used my name.
