What does “auridesion” mean?
“Auridesion” probably sounds like a funny name for a website — at least, it would if you knew how to pronounce it. (Say it like this: “OH-ree-DEH-see-own” — with a hacky French “R” if you can manage it.) I’ll bet you’re wondering what the heck it means. There’s no use trying to look it up in a dictionary, either, because you won’t find it there. It’s a made-up word, which would account for why you probably haven’t ever heard of it before. Not only is it a made-up word, it’s part of an entire made-up language I created for the sake of my epic masterpiece (which is still a work in progress). Auridesion happens to be my favorite word in that fictional language I made up, because it means “infinite creation.”
“Be not creative. Be creation.” What’s that supposed to mean?
Well, to me, it means a lot of things. It has some spiritual connotations, sure, but mostly it’s a reminder and a philosophy that as a creative person, we shouldn’t just come up with ideas, we should do something about them. Don’t just dream it, create it.
What’s up with the initials A.R.W.?
The short answer: Those are my initials. “Jo” is technically a nickname. For the long answer, you should read The Story Behind My Name.
Where are you from, Jo?
I was born, raised and still live in Dallas, Texas. I spent a lot of time in east Texas where my family is, so I consider myself as much from that area as Dallas.
