As I wrote in my post "Why Windmills?" where I explained the origin behind my blog's name (and the multiple meanings it has for me), I have since come up with several other, and possibly superior, apellations. "Are Women Magic?" from Truffaut's Day For Night is one that I have seriously considered as an option and just today, in a conversation with a customer at the video store, I was reminded of yet another one: "Charlie Don't Surf."
Like Windmills Of My Mind, there could be a couple different ideas behind "Charlie." The most obvious one is that it is a quote from Apocalypse Now, one of my favorite films, but it also sounds as if it were an entreaty for whoever makes their way onto this blog to stick around and check out what I've written thus far ("Hey, don't surf the net anymore, Charlie. Rest here for a while."). Of course, I would have to amend the punctuation for it to literally take that on that meaning ("Charlie, Don't Surf!") but I probably wouldn't do that.
Anyway, I'm not trying to indicate that I'll be doing away with Windmills anytime soon because I have no plans to do so. I tend to feel that once you've selected a name for something you should stick with it (no offense intended, Shamus) but if I ever should decide to change my blog title, I at least have a few of decent alternatives.
