i had a hard time deciding what to call my blog.  my first thought was little epiphanies…and it ended up being my last thought, kind of.  i think “little epiphanies” is me…but i was concerned that it implied my blog would be serious all the time…which it won’t be.  i just want a way to share and connect.  i have thought of a few more since then…i really like “i should start a blog”.  one title makes me uncomfortable.  it makes me feel boxed in.  i guess that’s how i have felt in life too.  i fit in a lot of different “boxes” or “titles” but there is not one that defines me.  i’m going to stick with little epiphanies for now…i felt better when i found out i can always change it.

the same is true about me.  i am always changing…evolving.  i remember having the “what would you call your autobiography” conversation with my cathy almost 30 years ago.  she came up with “the care and feeding of mahry”.  that really fit at the time.  it was about basic survival…and figuring out how to take care of me.  i’ve had this conversation many times throughout the years.  at one point i felt i would call my autobiography “this isn’t my life”.  for a while now it has been “little epiphanies”.  i wonder what it will be next?  maybe “i should write an autobiography”.   i was having a great conversation about politics with my friend ellen and i came up with another great book title, “i don’t know if i’m right, but i know you’re wrong”.  i should write that book.   : )

here is one of the best titles i’ve seen in a long time…because sometimes, you have to laugh.

my son quincy was drinking pop today and asked me if bubbles make shadows.  brilliant question from a brilliant kid.  we talked about that a bit.  he got quiet and then said, “do bubbles make shadows. that would make a great book title”.  my boy.

what would your autobiography or book be called?  why?
