What is in a Name?

Yesterday I came up with a perfect name for my blog:  Kibbles and Bits.  It is the perfect combination of dogs + Molly.  But my blog has a name. And there's always the risk of infringing on copyrights, I suppose.

This happens sometimes when I think up a good retail name.  No matter that I am not a retail person. After all, the Girl Scouts and I parted company when they said "go forth and sell [cookies]".  Except that there's a bookstore in Apalachicola, FL that is a retirement dream.  But it already has a name.

I wish I wrote these things down when they happen.  But that might put a damper on having them float up from somewhere in my brain stem where they must originate. 

I've been thinking a lot about wishes and dreams lately, and putting a name to my dreams. Do you think we stop consciously dreaming after a certain point or age? 

For me, the routine of everyday swamps the creative time unless I consciously think about it and make room for it.  Then I find that the dreams are there, just below the surface waiting to be claimed.

  1. Making room for dreams ... that's the trick isn't it.
    I hope you won't stop doing that. Your creativity is very inspiring.
