I’m not sure what I am doing. That is, why blog. My first post was preposterously esoteric and I leave it posted as a reminder to myself that pompous does not equal clarity.
Let’s begin with Origin. First my name, Moses from the Hebrew meaning savior or drawn from the water. I was not drawn from the water but like my namesake, came from the desert to start a new. So says my friend who named me. Without personal history because I began “a new”, I chose Haygood as my sir name. Haygood is an altered form of the English Hawkwood, a habitational name from a place called Hawkswood in Sible Hedingham, Essex, or from Hawkwood Farm in Gosfield, Essex. To my knowledge, I am neither Welsh nor English. My last name derives from the Cherokee or my friend who found me. A former Texan, he is of that decent. Out of gratitude for saving me and our friendship, I took his last name.
Now, my origin began some twenty plus years ago. I woke up to sun and sound and a Cherokee man looking me in the eye asking if I was alright. Prior to that, I have no idea who, what or where I came from. I believe there are those who do and wish this extension of my research a pathfinder to who I am.
