Travel Diaries

Blog Sphere.  I have a new name.  A combination of my birth name, Anne Lindsay, and an added middle initial,  W.  I am named after my paternal great grandmother, Anne Wilson.   My  mother (now deceased) informed me that as my father walked to the registrar’s office my middle name — Wilson —  slipped his mind.  For my entire  life,  due to my father’s  carelessness, I have suffered an egregiousness abbreviation of my name.  I was diminished by a  slip between the informal act of naming and the official act of registration.

A new name.  A  pun realized by creative re-spacing and phonetic agility — an new lindsay — I’m sometimes so clever I make myself sick.

About annewlindsay

I don't go 'first class'. I can't afford to and even if I could I think I would still choose to travel as I do. I think you meet a more interesting class of people if you use local transportation and just take your chances. I'm getting restless again. Hope to meet you on the bus or train.

    The beauty of the blog is you are your own editor and publisher

    Yes. Must sharpen my editorial skills.

  3. I am so excited you have a blog. I can’t wait to see what travels come from you geographic movements and the internal movements of your cluttered mind!

      Thanks Laurie. I am still finding my way round the blogosphere. I didn’t know you were a blogger until now. I’ve joined the sisterhood and brotherhood of bloggers. I’ll visit you.
