Actually, Maria is my middle name. I was given this name because my father said he liked Latin names. In a past ESL center here in Shanghai, I was known as Teacher Maria for more than three years. When I changed to another center, I went back to using my first name. According to verywellfamily.com, “Maria can be translated to either mean “of the sea,” “bitter,” “beloved,” or “rebellious.” The last two meanings fit me. Hahahaha. To my understanding, I was given this name not based on its meaning though. This is my story.
I love creative writing and photography and I am passionate about both. I write poetry, essays, short stories and various thoughts about different topics. Sometimes I will post pictures I have taken as well. Writing eases my mind, releases tension in my heart and cleanses my soul. I will post a variety of my writings I have done over the past 20+ years and current writings. I will also post various photos I have taken from time to time as I also like photography as well. I welcome you to my blog and I hope you enjoy it.
