I just want to clarify that this week, I have begun going back to my birth name Haslam.
This week my husband told me that he was moving on, which after a 6 month separation, with no changes, was understood.
This might be the last of my discussion of this as I wish him well in his life and hope that we will be good friends in the future.
But I too feel my call and absolutely cannot conform to what others want me to be when I have to do what I know is right.
In this breaking point for my life, I decided that my birth name will be used from now on. I may never remarry, I dont care, I am in love with my work. So the name of my maiden days can carry on with me as a crone.
The name Haslam is an English name meaning Dweller under the Hazel tree.
I can live with that, and my people, my family, they are awesome!
So just to update to explain the changes. Online is easy, it is the other legal crap that will take longer to get that changed...lol
Anyway, I am still me and wanted to briefly explain the change.
