Mon Nom

Posted in Uncategorized by dagdha on May 1, 2012

One of the purest joys in life is discovering a new way to write one’s name. Short of looking in a mirror, I cannot think of a single act more self-assertive, self-affirming, and self-reflective than marking your signature on a surface with one instrument or another, be it pen on paper or Krylon on concrete. It fulfills that deeply seeded desire to leave a unique mark that boldly declares YOU WERE THERE, whether ‘there’ refers to a time, place, or idea with which you agree, or with which you are coerced to agree, as can sometimes be the case. But even then it is your signature.

Despite my usual verbosity, I have little else to say. Like singing in the shower or dancing in your room alone, signing one’s name is a simple, privately wonderful act whose pleasure cannot be described. It must be done.
