but now you're a lego boy!

Over and done with dark and spooky  Cheesy Grin Cheesy

I may be a lego boy now, but I am not over and done with the dark and spooky.  You ever step on a lego piece?  They hurt.  And they hurt because of the same reason pandas and penguins are so cute: they are plotting world domination.

*reads above paragraph*

Okay, I may have dropped dark and spooky and am now just crazy Tongue

so making your mom scream and swear in the middle of the night as she walks down the dark hallway to the bathroom is akin to world domination? Hmmm......

I never said it was a good plan, but the poor things try their hardest.  They probably think they are made in China and have lead in them.

I see so many interesting names, avatars, and sigs.  I'm just wondering about the stories behind them.

My name:  MakaniAhi is Fire Winds (ahi=fire; makani=wind).  I wanted to upload my own avatar, but I'm not a full member yet, so my avatar is from eCauldron.  Pele led me to my name--I can show you pics!!  This (meaning makaniahi) keeps showing up in my life, more than I'd like, actually!  But the snake and the egg...!  How marvelous!  Not sure I'd change my avatar even if I could.

I would just like to know why you chose what you did to help define you.  Everyone has a story!

~MakaniAhi

Thanks for the fun and interesting topic, MakaiAhi!

My avatar is a pic I took of a rose in my backyard last summer. My name is, in fact, Rose. I usually spell it lower case online b/c they are important to symbolically. I am attuned to roses and often use them magically. Kind of tiresome of me, I know, but there it is. I do find it highly amusing that in the pagan world, both online and IRL people often choose that name, but usually with some sort of descriptor attached, fore and/or aft. And so just plain "rose" is usually available, and people know who is who.
My Sha'can name, however, is Jayada (JAI-ahda) which means "She Who Is The Bringer Of Victory" and is the 440th name of Maa in her 1000 names mantra (and no, I do not have them all memorized). I sometimes use this name online, but more IRL.

My sig line is an elemental version of the Serenity Prayer (and yes, it's in the public domain...). I found it on the spiral steps yahoo list a while back. I was in 12 Step programs for many years, and still use many of the prayers and techniques I learned there.

~MakaniAhi

My name: A while ago I wanted to find an online identity like I know many of you have- something that represented me. I threw around ideas and Wintermoon came out. I've come to realize it really fits me. I've always loved the moon even before it was anything spiritual to me. And winter to me is the darker side of life that sometimes gets overlooked but is just as beautiful. Plus I love winter =]

I don't have an avatar because none on the site are quite right for me. When I (hopefully) become a full member (my birthday is approaching...), I plan on putting up a moon and/or a wolf. I've always loved wolves.

My sig: Vivian is not my legal name, but it has become a part of me. It comes from an anagram of my legal name. The first quote is something my sister said that just summed up my life, basically. The Amy Lee (who is the lead singer of Evanescence) quote is something I try to remind myself of periodically. And the Mark Twain quote sums up my philosophy on education. Sometimes I get frustrated by school because it takes time away from other things I could be doing (like exploring my spirituality...).

These threads are always so interesting!

Kasmira is the name I chose when I dedicated myself to my spiritual path. Depending on your source it means either "bringer of peace" or "destroyer of peace" both of which fit me very well as I am both prone to becoming the peacekeeper in any situation and incapable of being anything but frank. I also like this name because it has a male counterpart, Kasmir, which can represent my masculinity. I see gender as a continuum and I got made somewhere in the middle or, more accurately, near both ends.

The wolves on my avatar are because I feel that I have an affinity with them. I've felt connected with them since I was a kid and they have become somewhat symbolic to me as beings which cross between the spiritual and mundane worlds.

The words on my avatar are "Is lei me, is mise ise" which is Irish Gaelic and can be approximately translated as "I am hers, I am her" (any Gaelic speakers please correct me if I am wrong). Essentially this is the way I verbalize my dedication to the divine as well as accepting that I am, myself, a part of it.

Fae is my name IRL. It's not the one on my birth certificate, but it is the one everyone calls me.  The pic is an old avatar that I still like. It's essentially a representation of a kind of perpetual optimism; no matter how bad thing seem to get there are always things that are beautiful. Beauty also used to be one way in which I referred to the divine. The quote is one of my favorites and represents my approach to life. You'll never do anything spectacular unless you are first prepared to risk everything and jump. The links are to my fictionpress and livejournal accounts, neither of which am I very good at keeping up. I really should get back to writing properly again...

Name - Got the name from my older nrother years ago, when I was about 14. He used it to describe the way I was playing a computer game (can't remember what it was).

Avatar - Umm...

Sig - A paraphrase on something my physics teacher once said, I just like it.

My name: Valkyriia: I chose this name partly because I love the name and haven't found any others like it. It is a feminine way to spell Valkyrie. The Norse handmaidens who took fallen soldiers from battle to Valhalla.  Valkyriia is starring in a book I'm currenty writing. It'll take me a while to finish. I'm a procrastinator of the first order.  Grin  My personal magical name is Aspen Rain, I love the tree. Again it's not a common tree. It took me forever to find magical info on it.  Roll Eyes The rain fits since I live in the PNW where it rains A LOT!! LOL
 
My avatar: is just a TC logo that I really like.

My sig is a picture AIONIA did for me. There is a full moon in the background with a triquetra layed over that and my name writen over it all. She also drew a picture for me incorperating all five of my deities. It's currently in the plastic cover of my BOS/Great Big Book of Everything.

Thanks, everyone, for sharing!  I love learning about people's stories.  Even when I'm in traffic and someone cuts me off, I think about why they did it.  It's not an insult to me, personally.  I figure this guy just finished working fourteen hours and all he wants to do is get home to his wife and kids.  I'm just a car in his way.

Understandably, I get annoyed that folks look at me as a Toyota or Isuzu, instead of a person with my own story, but, *sigh* "I can't control the wind, but I can adjust my sails."

We're all doing the best we can with what we have.

My avatar is one of TC too, but it holds a strong meaning for me. It's the rune Ansuz, its meaning is about messages, just like my real name ("angel" in Hebrew means "messenger"), and I consider myself some kind of messenger too. Anyway, I'm thinking about changing it, but I need to find an image I like first.

And as you can see, I did change it. Smiley My new avatar is a drawing of me made by one of my dearest friends some years ago. I received an email from her a few days ago where she asked me what did I do with the drawing. Then, I decided it would be a nice avatar. And I'm using it now, so I'll let her know when I answer the email.

...why would *valkyrie* need a feminine spelling?

Okay sorry, the name was written like that because an old friend of mine wanted to name his daughter Valkyriia. I still love the name even though we're no longer friends.
