Been a while. Is this thing on? :)

Things are going kinda great actually, I'm doing less aerials (not currently performing) but feel in shape and strong again, and I'm doing more visual art which was my first and most powerful calling. Starting to get into a groove and find my voice: New art website at www.earthsign.com. More daily life and visual updates are usually on facebook under [real.name].

Changing my name. Tired of that moment of fear in people's eyes when they realize they're not likely to spell/pronounce it right. It gets in the way. new=LaManche, same great backstory, fewer syllables! Will be legal this year, everyone will get used to it and forget it was ever different. This is something I've been meaning to do for years.

so, hey!

Fabulous new name. So, lah-MAHNsch, or lah-MAHN-cheh?

Thanks -- looks like I was getting the last consonant wrong.

Changing my name made me happier than I even than I thought it would (though there were a few complications in my case, it was more than worth it after the fact). So glad to hear you are doing well! Loving the art I've seen so far!

Thank you for the advice and chat, too! Your evoluton seemed to go so well and be so natural. All in the process of becoming more myself, it's a good thing.

The Dock Tattoo project looks very cool; I can only imagine the dock will be as satisfied a customer as my shoulder. Next up for me is writing a play retelling the Pygmalian/Galatea story with a female tattoo artist and her male client.

Hey, you might be a good person to ask: any tattoo-related books/sites you'd recommend, as I research this?

Yay desired name change! I'm not sure I knew backstory for your old name, nevermind the new name. Some of my family came from La Manche, Newfoundland, though.

Yay doing cool stuff that makes you happy! You had me at plump garlic cloves and the Dock Tattoo project looks awesome. Will do my best to remember your new name.

Always nice to hear from you! I've been loving the recent art proposals I've seen of yours.

Was the previous last name also chosen? Congrats on the new you!
