I've named myself "Orinda the Natural" for several reasons.
First of all, I love being around nature, and also am a naturalist in my way of decorating myself, the kinds of chemicals I use, and the types of foods I prefer eating.
For the name "Orinda":
I grew up for 10 years during my early childhood in Orinda, California (part of the San Francisco Bay Area).
I enjoy being a poet just like the town of Orinda was named after a poet.
I can relate myself to three different ways of splitting up the name Orinda, i.e. Or-in-da
Or-in-da (as in the musical note da), I like multiple different kinds of music, have a musical ear, sometimes make up or write lyrics (mainly following a tune I already know), and I like being in direct connection with a lot of traveling musicians.
Or-in-da (as in a little kid saying "the"), I have liked being in many different places at different times, mind wise, time wise, and location wise, other than obviously living there as a little kid like I said earlier.
Or-in-da (as in: Or in "duh"), I was considered pretty ill and stupid with a poor memory, during my later years living there as a child, after getting seizures from a head injury for awhile, though I've recovered from that now and am often considered pretty brilliant nowadays which is very charming.
Otherwise I also call myself "Orinda the Natural", because I don't want to steal the pen name from the original poet Orinda.
