Does time make you bolder?

Reader-submitted question: Did you name your blog after the Stevie Nicks song?

Yes, sort of.

This question comes up every few months as new readers find their way here.

I have read that "I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills" was originally intended as a cocaine reference, but I've also read that it wasn't. The lesson here is probably that cocaine addicts don't really know what they're saying and it's best not to read too much into it.

It doesn't matter, though. I think it's a particularly good name for my blog for a number of reasons, the most obvious being that this is a personal blog that's written in the north. If you've ever explored my links list, you've probably noticed that most of the "northern" blogs have a reference to the north in their titles. I don't really think of this as a northern blog -- I've been here too long to pull off the wide-eyed-newcomer shtick -- but I guess technically it is. On another level, it's a song about a woman who is thinking about making changes in her life and watching other changes go on around her, and I really identify with that. I think most people can.

I've never been good at remembering names of songs or singers or bands ;)
I just love that blog title :)
