Today’s slice is inspired by something Elsie wrote in my comments yesterday having to do with my posted name – arjeha. What is it? Where did it come from? Why such a name?
Well, to start with let me just say that when my friend Cindy Minnich got me started with this last June I wasn’t really sure where it would go or even if I would keep up with it. I didn’t really consider myself a writer even though I taught sixth grade English and writing, went through the Capital Area Writing Project in 2000, and still work with the project as a volunteer co-director. What could I possible have to write about that people would want to read?
So when it came time to pick a name for my WordPress blog I didn’t want to use my name. I came up arjeha instead. Here is what it means. Not very original but it works for me. Arjeha is simple the initial of my first name, middle name, and the first two letters of my last name. R(ar)obert J(je)ames Ha(ha)mera – arjeha. Would you believe that “ja”was already taken so hence the “je”?
To my brothers and sister I will always be Bobby even though I am 62. To my nephews ans niece I am Uncle Bobby, To my colleagues I am Bob , and on my blog I am arjeha.
So there you have the origin on my name. Not very exciting, but it works for me. Elsie, thanks for the suggestion.
