Okay, so it’s not my real name, but it’s one I’ve adopted – just like when I turn into Jetta onstage, Christyna is the persona I seem to have grown into – it’s kind of a……more free version of myself, and still myself at the same time. Don’t ask me to explain it all – I just like the name, so I plucked it out of the air and stuck it there. It may have come from my recent fashion dabblings, or “she” may have just been waiting in the wings, waiting to come out.
I have to admit, I have felt less inhibited as of late, but maybe that comes from my circles of friends, both here and in Denver, plus the people I associate with in my daily career life. I’ve spruced up my attire in my own way, left my male shoes far behind me (at least for now), and have done things to enhance what I already have. It feels good! It’s nice to be able to be me once again. A lot of people choose alternate names for these times, so this is my expression.
This is me. (okay…the pic on this posting isn’t, but that black and white one I always use IS)
