A strange name, you say? I agree!
I came up with the name a couple years ago when creating this blog. My other blog had the name “quixotic faith” and I needed a nickname.
“Quixie” for short. Short like me. And cute, also like me.
Plus, it rhymes with Trixie, a character from a book series I read when I was 13.
“Quixotic” is an exotic word. What does it mean?
It essentially means foolishly impractical and idealistic. That’s me! Was me.
I was proud of my faith and especially that it was foolishly idealistic. I was willing to believe at all costs. Over time the search for truth and reason out- weighed my desire to believe.
This blog was born out of my deconversion. After shaking off the shackles of religion I can now live in line with my own values and truly be “me.” The Quixie personna, and this blog, is great representation of who I now really am.
