First entry/posting (not sure what to call it) I wasn’t sure what to call the blog, so I started looking for the meaning behind my name. The result was Black Eagle, which I thought to be a very dark depiction. Eagles, like many other big birds are carnivores and the colour black is dark and often seen as being sinister. However, many eagles are admired as living symbols of power, freedom, and transcendence while the colour black implies self-control and discipline, independence and a strong will, and giving an impression of authority and power. It’s funny how the first impression that I had was that it was the opposite of my own personality. Looking into it further, I think that it might have very well captured my very essence.
