I was getting bogged down (or is that blogged down?) in the search for a new blog name.
All kinds of creative things were percolating around in my busy brain. I knew I liked the water/bridge motiff. I really liked the stream idea, since they are such a great metafore for life. Water, the Holy Spirit, peace, the music water makes, the water 0f life. These are all things I wanted to work with. did you ever think about how a stream would not make music if it didn’t have rocks to gurgle over? if the bed of the stream was perfectly smooth, there would be no musical tinkle and trickle and flowing sounds. Our lives are like that. We need obstacles and things to flow over in order to make music for our creator and our fellow creatures.
sorry. small digression there.
Finally one person suggested something so blindingly simple. It stopped my whirlingbrain in its tracks.
She said that she had never realized the pun, she always read the blog title inside her head as “stream of consciousness” and it wasn’t until she went to put me in her blog roll that she realized that it was something else.
So, I’m going the easy route. The URL will remain screamofcontinuousness, but the blog title will be
stream of consciousness
Now I just have to learn how to consistently spell consciousness properly. Without having to think about it so hard.
