As you can read, I changed my domain name. (Thanks for the help, Cliff!) Some of you may remember me mentioning that graysuede was not my first choice for the blog title, but my other options were either taken or too expensive-so graysuede it was for over five years. Since 2016, I wanted to change it, but nothing stuck. Nothing prompted a Yes, girl! That’s it!, so I chalked it up to being wrong timing and just rode it out until something stuck. And time finally said now.
I’m very much into timing; I make moves according to when my spirit signals it’s best. I debuted my blog on summer solstice 2012 and now, with black.burgundy, I’m starting anew on the last day of summer/autumnal equinox. Although the exact hours vary on this year’s equinox, the word itself means equal night: equal hours of day and night. Historically, it marks a changing season and a time to celebrate the arrival of fall harvest; change is almost always a good, necessary thing, so how fitting, right? This morning, the sun enters Libra, the zodiac of balanced scales. You know I try to keep it fresh with humor/sarcasm, knowledge, art and …whatever else comes to mind worth sharing. This balanced medley is important and, along with visible and tangible changes as well as the aforementioned factors, my spirit felt it was right to manifest that change in line with the official start of autumn. And WordPress was being hella glitchy these last few weeks like it knew graysuede’s time was up! So here we are.
Welcome to black.burgundy. It may seem like a simple change, but it feels even more special and personal because I got my first choice this time. I’m excited to see what this season will bring. Will it be another five years before I feel the need for a different shift? Who knows. I’ll hope you’ll stick around to see.
