I'm kinda getting attached to Dharma... wierd, huh?
I love the description of "sandbox" name -- that was what I found when I used my nickname again after weeks of using my legal name in class -- it felt playful and sensuous somehow........
I think it is interesting that most of us here have chosen to use an alias -- I do think of you as Dharma. Zoners with whom I have a relationship away from the board are still their Zone name to me, I have trouble learning to call them by another name even if it is their "real" one.
And then there are the avatars. I tend to look at the avatars before I look at the name, I suppose our choices of avatar have something to say about who we are just like the name we choose to use here.
