Kenshin does seem to center itself around love, yes yes.

The story is beautiful...and really, really sad.

I like your guys' stories!   I picked skyshine when I registered because I love anything in the sky (clouds, stars, sun, moon...everything) but I couldn't pick out a name based on that, because Sunshine was already taken   and I didn't want to use Starshine, so skyshine it was! Just call me sky.

Before the name change sweep, I used the handle Chason deGuest...French for Song of guesture. I dunno. I was into French I guess. And what the heck does song of guesture mean anyway? lol

I was otherwise known in other forums as little bird and just wanted a change.

I bought my share of mistakes so I might see some interest.

My husband always thought he was pulling something over on me. He acted like I was stupid or something. And, the name "SmartChick" just popped into my head one day. So, I started using this name and have used it ever since.

Latearrival was what I choose for myself because after constantly telling all my "kids" they had to see to it that their children had computers in this advanced age of communicating, I was the last to have one. I was given the first one I had bought for my youngest son when he had to buy a newer one. I felt I was arriving late to the party. lol martyjo

I think I've told this story before but here goes:

When I got my computer, I wanted an identity other than my ‘real’ life identity. I think I wanted to hide behind the anonymity of a name that would be recognized as someone I never thought I could be.

I sat at my dining room table with poetry books, a thesaurus, a dictionary and paper and pencil. I knew I wanted an identity that would exemplify my body of work. I love ivy…the way it looks against a brick wall. I thought about each of my poems as a leaf of ivy on that vine. "Leaves of Inspiration" was my first choice, but couldn’t fit a suitable ‘name’ in there. I read about vines..about ivy...about branches...until I realized that I could do a play on words.

The Vine....deVine...everyone mistakes it for divine (heavenly)..but actually it is the vine. Poet seemed the perfect first name...Poet of the Vine.

Besides, it’s not bad to be called Poet. I hope I am one. (Not so much lately as the muse has flown from me it seems! Guess it's two years of stress and worry about moving and then arriving at my new home only to weather two hurricanes! And now we are awaiting the arrival of twin grandsons!!)

"Nightshade" an innocent looking plant whose flowers can make you smile .... but if taken for granted can give you quite a "kick". Who? Me?

When I am sad or thinking I always look to the clouds looking for answers (that probably sounds odd). I remember when I was really little, I used to tell my mom that my grandfather was sitting on one of them puffy clouds staring at me.

With all that was going on in my life. I should of named it Grey Cloud 9. I guess I had my "head in the clouds" to what was happening with my husband.

Well...one day I was listening to a CD by Chanticleer (they do Gregorian Chants) while researching some Einstein quotes actually.  Strangely enough, the title of the CD was Mysteria   and the quote I was reading at the time was this one,  

"The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavor in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind.

—Albert Einstein

I figured I was indeed one of the hardest persons to get to understand, and as I was always seeking answers to something or other, I figued it suited me.  I am strangely interested in all things unexplained, and seek out the explanations.     So, I dropped the name I had picked before and became, Mysteria.

Mysteria - that's a cool story

Beenie - I haven't seen you around yet - welcome - you've got a cute name

What strikes me is how much meaning people have and I don't - I just liked the sound of the word I should think up some meaning for it...

It's really interesting, really.

You're right about Christmas being the real catalyst. But that's just one piece of the story!

I've always been a hippy spirit pretty much, and though I didn't start writing poetry seriously until February of 2000 when my sophomore English teacher Philippe Ernewein inspired me to, I always had a lust for writing and letting my imagination run wild since I was Mistletoe Cherub, and I've always been fascinated by the free-spirit ideals.

I really reflected my love of nature in my diary when I was eleven, when I went to Nederland on a warm July day and met a writer from olympia, Washington named Rainbow Dancer (his name has become a spiritual character of mine in many of my poems). He goes across the country writing books about bird songs and taking pictures of people wearing peace shirts and making photo album after album of collections of these peace-shirt wearing folks. So he saw me wearing a peace shirt (I guess I've always had the peacenik activist blood in me from the beginning, LOL, giggles), took a picture, then I talked with him for a bit, told me what he did, asked of my inspirations and then told me to not just love the flowers of the Earth, but be among them. I guess those words literally stuck with me all this time!

The first poetry forum I ever posted on after Mr. Ernewein encouraged me to become a prolific, serious poet at the turn of the century was called Papa's Poetry Circle. I kind of coined my own proverb prior to that April 2000: "Dream With The Daffofils" inspired by Rainbow Dancer. I was listening to a lot of Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead at the time, and I guess song titles like "China Cat Sunflower" and "Sugar Magnolia" just got my imagination and imagery running wild, because I have an extreme love of flowers, and I adopted the pen-name Daffodil Angel and it just stuck on from then.

It was a poet named Mutington who became a close friend of mine and encouraged me to post on her new site Mutington's meadow. So I did, and then from there, she promoted the link to Passions In Poetry with Startime and before Christmas in 2000, I decided to join here, yay!

After Thanksgiving, I thought it would be cool to temporarily change my name to get in the holiday spirit, so I just went with Mistletoe Angel. Because I joined here just before Christmas, I used Mistletoe Angel and at the time I thought you weren't stuck with the same pen-name your whole life here, LOL! So really my name was intended to usually be Daffodil Angel here.

But that's absolutely OK, because I consider the Mistletoe Angel name a very happy accident as Bob Ross liked to call it when he made little bloopers doing paintings but just let them be.

I've thought more and more these past four and a half years and I find my name is very philosophically sound too. In that I believe the spirit of Christmas, giving and sharing and caring for the less fortunate, ought to fill our hearts and minds 365 days a year in one way or another, and I'm just trying to give and share my heart in that manner as much as I can year-round.

Also, mistletoe has many mixed meanings and perceptions across the world. Some glorify it as a sweet, seductive entity, which makes lovers kiss during the holidays and such, but other cultures see it negatively as a parasite that kills oak trees. So I guess I'm just a lot of things, and my name is like a walking contradiction, and I guess I'll just let God and everyone else decide who I am!

Mistletoe Angel has really leaked into my regular social identity as well. I use it as a nick-name when I sign greeting cards, petitions, at KBOO radio, etc.



So my name is essentially just that; a happy hippy accident! (giggles)

Yay, I love this thread and love learning of everyone else's origins, yay!



Love,
Noah Eaton

Amazon Link

I searched for it on amazon, and this is what I got. The OVA releases are the best animation style wise and storyline wise. There is also a movie. I would suggest looking for the individual episodes elsewhere considering there are over 100 of them.
