chi -- when pronounced "shy", Chi is a nickname for Chicago, "Chi-town", my adopted hometown
chi -- when pronounced "Ki" (long "i") Chi is the Greek letter "X"; Greece is the first foreign land I fell head over heels in love with for its archaeology and its mythology and its climate and its history and its people; it is the 22nd letter of the alphabet that I set myself to memorize in high school just because I thought it would be cool (such. a. freak.)
chi -- when sounded out as an anagram, CHI stands for "Computer Human Interaction" design, the thing I do for a living
chi -- when rolled into something entirely new, chi pom pom pom is the enigmatic name of lolabola's blog, the beautiful bailaora whom I have never met, but who seems like an old friend because her blog has become a regular fix (maybe, if she spots this, she'll tell us where the name came from :)
No moral to this story. Just spotted equusigns' lovely letterforms this morning and got to thinking about the ways that these three letters touch my life.
