all things apiphany
"Why the 'all things apiphany'?" he asked.
Well, I'll tell you. Many days I feel like everyone else, blending in with the crowd, giving only my share to the Gross National Product.
But there are many more days that I want to not be like anyone else, and give more than my share, to everything, not just the GNP. I don't necessarily want to stand out in the crowd, but I won't conform to something I don't want to do, or believe in, just to blend in. In the very least, I've got that much figured out. "To thine own self, be true" my mom has always said to me.
With a fierce love for certain words, epiphany has always been a favorite.
"A sudden manifestation of the essence or meaning of something"
The aHA! moment that comes when the light bulb goes off above your head because you've just come to understand something. It shows up every once in a while for me, that moment.
So, taking the favorite word, and making it my own, I change the "E", to an "A". You'll find me on Twitter as apiphany, and my email addresses are always a form of apiphany in some way. Even online bill-paying includes apiphany in various forms. Stick to what you like, so they say.
After I explained to my friend that asked the "why?" he said "oh good I was going to advise that you spelled it wrong. But YOU are Apiphany, so it's correct"
Yes. Yes I am.
See you soon friend,
