Poll: Naming a blog
To-day we have naming of parts. Japonica
Glistens like coral in all of the neighboring gardens,
And to-day we have naming of parts.

- Henry Reed, "Naming of Parts", 1942

So, as I've mentioned here before, I'm contemplating starting a blog for my more religious/spiritual/mystical poetry and prose; this idea was somewhat sparked by Del Tashlin, who in a recent post where he (amongst other things) asked people to

Tell your story. Tell your story even if you’re still figuring it all out. Admit you don’t have a God phone. Write a blog that’s all about how hard it is for you to meditate. Write about how it makes you feel when you feel chosen by some other path, especially if that path makes you feel lonely, different, radioactive, frustrated, depressed. Talk openly about how all this talk of spirit work makes you feel lesser because you weren’t chosen for that. Create a Tumblr for people who don’t hear the Gods, and encourage each other to create and stick to devotional work in spite of that.

I don't have a godphone. I suck at meditation. And I'm definitely still figuring it all out. That being said, I think that I (occasionally) write stuff that is worth sharing, that might be better in a blog. I'm not abandoning my LJ, though.

But what to name it? I think that names are really important. Although I have some ideas about it already, I'm always in favor of crowdsourcing things a bit (especially in creative/spiritual/magickal work*). So, without further ado, I present a poll:

What should I name my blog?

"The Words Swim, Waiting"
"Poetry Declares It Differently"
"Of Imagination All Compact"
"Merely A Thought And A Quest"
Something else (put your suggestion in the text box)

Your suggestion

* e.g. my tattoo where the design came from a group guided meditation/journey**
** hey, that would make a good post for the new blog! ;-)

I love this idea and might do one myself. I'd love to read your blog, whatever it ends up naming itself. ;)

I still have my copy of "The Words Swim." :-)

Did I autograph it for you?

Y'know, I don't know. I'll check! I want to say 'yes' but I don't remember!
