Okay so a commonly asked question that I receive is, "What the heck does Rubber-Sol mean, anyway?" I've had this here blog for over a year now, and I have neglected to explain the meaning behind the title. It's nothing earth-shattering or deep....to be honest, with the .com explosion, it was gettin' kinda hard to pick a clever domain name.
Anyway, as JustJenn surmised way back when, the title comes from my FAVORITE Beatles' album titled, "Rubber Soul." I am a HUGE, HUGE Beatles' fan, and this album has some of my alltime fave songs, like: "In My Life" and "I'm Looking Through You." Initially I tried to obtain rubbersoul.com, but as I predicted, it was taken. (If you like rubber stamps like I do, check out their site!)
As I mentioned in my previous post, I used to live in México, and I have always admired the artesanías (folk art) of that country. The sun is a popular symbol, and it is used a lot in Mexican art, especially by the Huichol Indians. Sun translated in Spanish is "Sol" -- voilá! a twist on the Rubber Soul moniker. See!? I told you it wasn't that exciting.
Well I'm off to the pumpkin patch. Have a great Sunday!
