As I was thinking of unique blog name, I thought of myself and asked “what?!”
Okay let’s just skip the drama. HAHA! Here’s the giddy tale about the Blog Name that sounds like a tongue twister. [chuckles]
SOLILOQUY is the act of talking to oneself.
In Late Latin it is soliloquium, from Latin word solus which means alone and loqui which means “to speak”.
It is a dramatic monologue that represents a series of unspoken reflections.
It was artfully used by William Shakespeare to reveal the minds of characters in the 16th-17th centuries.
Pierre Corneille emphasized its lyricism. Thus, my poems. They are written base on emotions and events and certain spur-of-the-moment inspirations. This blog is created to house and safe-keep them.
Jean Racine favoured it for dramatic effect. Thus, my writings and essays and photo blogs and poems again. They apparently are for expression of feelings and thoughts. I over react. When I don’t, perhaps I’m not listening or I’m at my unattentive or anhedonic state. It’s just not me without the drama. Simplicity is pretty. I am not.
SILLY on the other hand originated from the Middle English word sely meaning happiness, innocent, pitiable.
Its lack of seriousness can be taken in two ways. On the positive side, it is humble, carefree, happy, playful, childish, wacky. It is usually used negatively though as it means weak, helpless, foolish, puerile, witless, shallow.
I take the good part of it. Hmmm well, the doom and gloom of the word doesn’t sound that bad to me. XD
SO-SILLY-LOQUY is a combination of the words SOLILOQUY and SILLY.
Thus the tag line, when self talk gets so silly.
So, in the
simple sense, silly sense, sosillyloquy is a dramatic self-talk used to reveal the thoughts and emotions that are oh so silly that it drives me crazy more often than not yet I just can’t help it. I’m doomed. I’m insane. I’m helpless.
I am The Soliloquist.
