Using commercial blog portals is easy, effective and convenient. So should have felt most other users that before me attempted to find a name for the homepage to synthetically evoke a seductive wealth of content promises…most of the names that I wanted were already taken.
Sometimes even simple obstacles like this one are placed across our way for a reason. Most of the times our initial choices are simply not good enough, and the hurdles are only a memento to always try harder. Again, time is the worst advisor and I had to fight the initial reaction to compromise for a quick result.
I brewed another coffee and sat outside in the porch observing the world walk by. I had to take more time dig further inside me as to what this walking experience is true to me.
The idea was still to connect somehow the concepts of “life in motion” (i.e. ageing) with ” journey”. After not long, the intuition of using “Pilgrim” instead of “Explorer”, or “Wanderer” or even “Adventurer” came out quite strong, and I checked “lifepilgrim”….
The positive response flashing in green under the proposed name told me that there was more than the choice of a name in the game. I moved on, much later than what I wanted originally, but with a lot of more inner satisfaction.
