Shedding My Old Name - rockclimber - 05-21-2007

For those who know me, I will no longer go by Rockclimber, but will now go by rcs. Rockclimber sounds like a name an 18-year old would have, and I'm 43, lol. No offense to the 18-year olds. Plus I'm psst because I haven't been climbing for awhile. Preparing for a move and it's killing all my free time. Must get out and see some nature soon, as life in the city just sucks.:)

Btw, my name is Scott, so hello all.

So now it's just plain old rcs, an acronym for my former name.

'sup scott, :grin:rock on.

You should make it capital letters. rcs looks flat. Plus no one will know it's an acronym unless you capitalize it.

How do you change usernames anyways? Not that I want to, but I'm a curious primate today.

You should have kept it RCS or just Scott like we know and love you as.
As a friend I think I can be brutally honest... can I?
Your new name sucks donkey balls.

Indigenous cultures understood that names evoked identity, power and events ...

... names outpictured their inherent qualities.

Names invoked vision ...

... self-fulfilling prophecies.


I once knew a child who was a "klutz" ...

... she was always breaking things and getting into accidents.

Everybody (usually) called her by her nickname, which was "Stupid".

Her parents were instructed to give her a new nickname ...

... "Lucky".

You know ... she never got into accidents after that new nickname.

Another child was sickly ...

... his parents were instructed to nickname him "Champion".

He became a star athlete in high school and college.

Other cultures would encourage multiple names (or nicknames) for the same person.

As an example, there would be a name that was only used by one's family members (and not by anyone else).

And there would be a name that was only used by one's tribe (and no one outside the tribe was allowed to use that name).

And then there would be a secret name that was only used by one's spouse in the private intimacies of marital love ...

At any time, you always have a right to re-invent yourself ...

... the past does not equal the future.


May everyone on this forum comprehend this.

I will always know you as Rockclimber ...

... whether you are currently rock climbing or not.

I will always see you as 18 ...

... vital, alive, joyous.


[Image: 1320.jpg]

I will always visualize you outdoors ...

... victorious at whatever you climb.

Ctrl is very wise and intuits your inner nature, Scott ...

... irregardless of your current outer status.

I call you Rockclimber ...

... evoking that inner nature ...

... may you climb into victory !

Hey Scott.

I thought of you for a moment this weekend when I was at what I call The First Church of the New World Order (Yosemite National Park). They've got some crazy-ass climbers there. I started sweating just watching them. You do that sort of stuff, like El Capitan?

Best,

Henry

Hi Henry.

No darn it and I wished I had. I was always too poor from paying every single part of my check for child support. Not complaining mind you, the kids came first, but when your broke, you learn how to barter. In fact I acquired my gear by trading a nice rifle for it, straight up. Ended up with a ton of quickdraws, caribiners, belaying devices, a harness, 2-lengths of rope and lot's of webbing. Then I took up climbing. Yes!

That day may yet come if I have my way, El Capitan that is.

I've done a lot of multi-pitch routes, but haven't done anything outside of Arizona. I love sport routes, usually less than 1-pitch and where all the bolts are already in place. It's a quick way to go and their are many hundreds and hundreds of routes across Arizona. I have done some trad (placing your own nutt's and cams) I was a competitive bouldering climber (up to 12-feet) and did quite well in local competitions and especially well for my age group.

Then I up and married, so climbing is now my 2nd love, but my 1st love wants all my time. (but she let's me go climbing from time to time;))

I have seen some of those sick and crazy climbers in my day though. The sport is not big, so you get to know even the best of the best and surprisingly, women tend to be natural climbers since they rely more on their legs and not their upper body to do the work, which is how it should be, and some of them are just amazingly strong! And to you guys..let me tell you, there are many a hot woman (and young ladies) in the sport. I'm sure the girls liked the guys just as well too.

Shite, don't get me started. It's a great sport. I call it a sport anyway because it does require some athleticism. I highly recommend it to everyone.;)
