The Essence Of A Name And Its Unspoken Nature

The Essence Of A Name

And Its Unspoken Nature


Sleepless In Seattle captured the heartbreaking essence of widowhood.  I was watching it unfold layer by layer the unthinkable loss of widowhood when I signed up with Soaring Spirits.  It spoke to me from the sadness of my heart.  They said I needed a fictitious name.  That was all I could think of at the time.  So I became “Sleepless In Seattle” in more ways then I care to be, I became like all of you, the essence of the movie in real life.

You can change your username, if you are unhappy with it. I know, as a friend I met  here did change her username... must be instructions somewhere  -- Beware, so many "names" already taken, have a few in mind. Mine is my first letter of my name (phonetic) and year of my birth --- not creative but available.

Sleepless in Seattle to me is like a fairytale movie, with a happy ending, so if you like that, if that's how you want people to think of  you, keep it.

Me? Its been no fairytale just four years of loneliness and sadness....

Take care, sorry for your loss, holidays are especially hard.

I guess for me a name that is too general is hard to relate to, my name here contains my name so people probably realise my name is Sue. The problems you have on the other hand, simply stated, is one we can all relate to. Seven years out for me a reminder during the day of who we once were, Ray and I as a couple, will trigger a sleepless night. I wish I could tell you it gets better but it doesn't, it just gets less frequent as the years go by.
