So, I've been thinking about the new blog title. I haven't really come up with anything yet. No, don't look at me that way! I know you think that I really should have something by now, since I've had like four or five days to think about it. The perfectionist in me is still a little bit of a problem, but mostly, I think it's just one long brain fart.
I think I'd like to incorporate the word "voice" in it, because that word doesn't have to be any more definable than the blog itself. Have you ever tried to explain someone's voice to a person who's never heard them speak before? The only thing you can really say is "high", "low", "gravelly", or "smooth". At least, those are the only words I can think of. The thing is, even though you can't really describe the person's voice, you can imagine it in your head perfectly if you've spent enough time around them. You know their voice, you just can't define it out loud. That's how I feel about this blog. I'm putting so much of myself into it, and there's no one word or phrase to describe me or the things I want to say here. The closest thing would be to call this my "voice".
But I can't just call this blog "Voice". There needs to be more words than that to make me happy.
The one phrase that keeps popping into my head every time I think about this is "A Knife in the Dark", which is the title of a chapter in The Fellowship of the Ring (the first Lord of the Rings book). I obviously can't call it that either, but it has a ring to it...no pun intended. I'd like to have something that sounds kind of like that, but I still don't know how all of this is going to turn out. "Voice" is the only word I have so far in the new title, and I might not even keep that if I actually come up with something better. Right now, I'm having a problem coming up with anything. Maybe I can find some inspiration lurking around here behind the trash can or something...
