Okay... I have always liked the sound of Raven.

In Celtic Mythology Badb was a goddess of war and she often took upon the guise of a Raven (or a wolf) during a battle to fend for her side.

Then there is the Poem by Edgar Allan Poe "The Raven" ...

Quote:
But the Raven, sitting lonely on that placid bust, spoke only That one word, as if its soul in that one word he did outpour Nothing farther then he uttered; not a feather then he fluttered-- Till I scarcely more than muttered: "Other friends have flown before-- On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before." Then the bird said "Nevermore."
I really like that piece!

But it was when I read the book On Raven's Wing by Morgan Llywelyn that I was drawn the Raven and since then I have used it for almost everything.

I chose my name because it almost the same as my email and I have a terrible time remembering such things. Also because Hippiemama was already in use but that is what most folks who know me call me.

Raven I have to tell you that my Dd loves you, she sees your name on the screen and wants me to read your post whatever it may be about. She doesn't know anyone else irl with the same name as her so she gets such I kick seeing yours on the screen.

I haven't been in it for many, many years either. The group in Seattle was very snooty when I moved here. Not sure if they still are. Very title conscious if you know what I mean.

I just saw your post. It's interesting, at least to me, some of our similarities! My husband drives a Mini Cooper, (never say that you won't be able to have one, he used to say that!)!!! And, my name is also Wendy! And, my husband used to work in Vancouver! (we lived in Bellingham,Wa.)!!

To answer the question, my screen name is such because, my dh and I love all the retro space stuff!

Well usually I choose a screan name with my name in it Shari, but for some reason my account here with the name Shari wouldn't activate, so I changed it to M2K meaning, Mommy to Kaitlyn. Sorry it's not very creative, I just didn't know what else to choose

Shari
