why virtù?

The original title of this blog was virtually sally - almost me which reflected my lost sense of self six months after having my second child and also paid comment to my online self not necessarily being a wholeistic representation of my real life self. I think the two are one in the same now.

On January 1, 2010 the titled changed to virtù - referring to the collection of traits necessary for the achivement of great things - I don't necessarily have such traits - but hey it would be nice wouldn't it? Virtu (noun) also means 1. excellence or merit in objects of art, curios, and the like; 2. (used with a plural verb) such objects or articles collectively and 3. a taste for or knowledge of such objects.

So the title of the blog is also what I am striving for in my life - something pretty and great.
