What Is My Name?

What Is My Name?

by Janice Wood

What is my name?

Quel est mon nom?

What do you think of

When you first see me, or

After you get to know me?

What’s my name?

Who do you see?

What do you feel?

Comment ça va?

I have other names so that

When I hear someone else call me

I will know from whence they came

Before I turn around.

Are you someone from my past

Or my present?

If they call me, “jay double you”,

I will know this is from my past.

If they call me, “JDub”

Then I know the present.

If they call me—,

Then I will know they know me

From this dot on the timeline.

I will know how to respond

When I turn around-

To either greet the past or

The present.

What’s my name?


First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

Today is the beginning of a dream. A dream which began long ago, but through procrastinating, I continued to dream on and tell myself, “Tomorrow”. Well tomorrow never came until today when I finally decided that now is the time because if I hold back, dreams come and nothing is done with them. No more procrastination; no more withholding this “start”, this beginning until every thing is perfect. Today begins with this realization and acceptance that nothing is ever perfect in Earth. Today is the start of  commencing something more than a dream, but a moving into an action.An action whether good or bad, desirable or undesirable begins now.

My “action” will include publishing thoughts, observations, opinions, poems, stories, essays, screen plays, etc. This is an attempt to connect with you the reader and as the reader, perhaps you will find agreement, or pleasure in what I write. Only time will tell.

I hope you enjoy.
