Name Change

On this life journey I am constantly having new epiphanies. I had one the other day, and to you it may seem like semantics, but to me it is much more.

I have never had very much confidence in myself (I tend to make up for it by pretending that I have a lot of confidence) and this showed in my old blog name. I thought I was being humble and witty–I see now that I was buying into both my own and other people’s doubt in myself.

Hence the change, I am no longer “Home of a Future ^Starving Artist” , but I have become “Home of a Future Artist”.

This gives me hope for the future, and confidence not only in my abilities now but also in the potential that my abilities have for the future.



P.S. I also changed the photo from Marriage of Figaro (me in the dress on the left of the banner) back to color because I decided it was less melancholy, and also because I needed the Once Upon A Mattress photo to be in color (me on the right of the banner).

  1. The next word you could eliminate is ‘future’, honestly. You are already an excellent artist and I trust you will only get more skilled and more complex.

  2. Thank you Keith, that really means a lot!
    I think I must have really skewed perceptions when it comes to my own gifts, or at least I judge them more harshly than I ought?
    Perhaps I just need to come up with a new name completely but I’m not sure what it should be…

  3. Poop! Keith beat me to it. Of course, I wouldn’t have been up at 8:40am, anyway…

    Why not just “Home of an Artist”?? I’d say you’ve already accomplished a great numner of things artistically-oriented (I don’t know if that really makes sense, but you know what I mean).

    Aaaaaand, if anything else, we (royal we?!) could just say that you’re both canvas, and painter–a few brush strokes here and there, a little more cerulean, or even a smudge make the creation that much more unique. Not always for the world to see, but for us to discover…

    That’s me being fanciful with words. It probably doesn’t make sense, but that’s ok. I’m on summer vacation! 😉

  4. Thank you all! You guys are so thoughtful and have actually given me a lot to think about.

    Nick–I totally get what you’re saying.

    What do you guys think about the name I have now?
