Feather on a Wire

 Dawn who writes 'Sweet as Cinnamon' asked why we have named our blogs what we chose.

What's in a name? Mine came from living in Greece at about the same time as Leonard Cohen. His song Bird on a Wire has always resonated with me and that's what I named my first blog. Finding a name for my new blog was easy, I'm known for my feathers and it became a natural follow on from that.

Go 3min 20 sec into the video if you wish to avoid the preamble.

I checked to make sure no one else had used this phrase ever online and took it as my blog name.

Some idiot on twitter who has not only read my blog but commented on it as well, has decided she can use it. Is that stealing, lack of imagination, impersonation, just down right rude or some other weird personality flaw?


  1. It's odd and lacking in imagination, but should probably be must feel a bit odd, though.

  2. Bizarre - I would feel like someone was imping me.

  3. Love the song. The person who copied you is just sad and lacking in imagination.

  4. This is so much fun reading how a blogger has chosen their blog name :o) so nice to meet you! Did you learn Greek while you lived in Greece? And Oh my goodness, the quilt you are working on that you show in the previous post is gorgeous! I love the borders!

    Blessings & Aloha!
    I goofed up on my link, so Dawn so sweetly added me back to the list. I would love if you get a chance to stop by and if you do, please leave a comment so that I know you were there.
