my name is a hybrid of my mother’s, grandmother’s, etc. and while i respect the history, it does not express my life as seperate for theirs. it does not reflect who i am. therefore, the name i have chosen stems from the very essence of who i am.
in every culture, naming is a sacred experience that follows a given task or ritual signifying adulthood. that is what this [very symetrically, poetic] name will be.
