What’s in a name? My real name has several meanings and the one I like most is wanderer. Somewhere along the path of figuring out internet identity, I glommed onto the name estuary for some of the writing sites I frequent. Estuaries are intensely fertile places, at the edge of multiple zones (sea, land, freshwater, air), and they harbor life that can exist in those liminal areas. That was important in a time when I felt rather dull-witted, or somehow empty and lacking in creativity. Somehow the two meanings and their words have come to have some synchronicity for me, as that fabulous estuarine meander in my avatar attests – I’m wandering in rich lands, learning to describe as I go. Walk with me?
