It is more work than I thought to change the title and design of the blog! I knew there were a few basic things I needed to change. The title “Elder Seth Spencer” would not work now I am finished with my mission, and I didn’t think it was that creative either. I love the title now! My Mom actually helped me come up with it. She first got the idea from a Wikipedia page. I wanted to find something unique, something personal, and I like an aura of mysteriousness as well. To help me meet these things we were searching for something which related to my name and the meaning of it. According to the page, the two pillars referred to pillars of brick and stone supposedly made by Seth (ancient son of Adam and Eve) and his descendants. The pillars were engraved with the scientific discoveries and knowledge, the idea of putting them in stone to be to preserve them over an extended period of time. I am not sure if that was something actually done by Seth, or something which was done at all. The idea I liked was of preserving those things which are important to us in our lives. I have found blogging to be a wonderful tool in preserving and sharing some of the important things in my life with others.
In changing the blog I started with one thing in my mind and then went searching for images and templates to coordinate and put everything together. I found it almost impossible to find what was exactly in my mind, but then as I found other things, the vision of what I did want would change. Or, I would find a part and realize that the other part I had needed to change. In the end, I was able to work everything out! It is interesting that as I reflect on it a little now, I see these small circles of searching as echoes of a little larger search I am currently on.
