My nickname was not so romantically inclined but.. March 10, 2005 12:22 PM
My niece would lovingly refer to me as Aunt Dork. I busted out laughing the first time she called me that. I said, "Thank you very much because I dig being a dork actually. And at least I can admit to being one at times."
She could call me dork anytime now, if only she could. ---ginger
For some reason, since my childhood, I've always felt very close to the various Native American cultures. I remember watching cowboy movies and "pulling" for the "Indians"... I had lots of "Indian" figurines I used to play with... At Carnival, my favorite costume was that of an "Indian Chief"... As an adult, I attended some Pow-Wows in USA, met some "real Indians", danced with them, and was even presented with a beautiul shawl! I also visited several reservations... Perhaps in one of my previous lives, I was indeed a Native American, why is the bond SO strong, then?!
Anyway, my husband Tony, who liked to write in his spare time, dedicated several stories to me... Or, should I say, to "La Principessa Piccola Roccia", Princess Little Rock. My father was a great chief, and I was enjoying my life at the village... riding my pony... walking in the forest... crossing a creek... Tony said that my name suited me very well, because I am small in size (petite) but have a character as strong as a "Rock"! Without him, however, Princess Little Rock is crumbling... And she's using this name as a tribute to him.
