The story of Neptunus and how his name came about
Neptunus is my older son: he is not a planet nor a sea god. When he was sailing in my belly I dreamt him often. I had spent many hours speculating about what to name him. One day I had found the name. But it looked like that he was not pleased at all with my choice. He came to me in a dream that very same night and showed me the planet Neptune and whispered the name to me. Well I have to admit that I felt a bit skeptical and decided that this was just coincident. I did write the dream in my dream log though. I was still determent to name him the name I had found. Few nights later he was back in a dream and had brought two things with him. A huge dictionary and an Egyptian dream goddess. He opened the big book and pointed out the goddess name and then his name - Neptunus - When I woke up in themorning I felt it was all very clear - this was the name that he had to have. I don't know why but to be perfectly honest no other name would fit him right and he is very proud and happy about it. He always says: I am Neptunus. He is almost 13, reading and reading, his passion is to become a writer and is preparing to write a play. His father died when he was 2 years old. But he has never let his trageties bring him down, his heart is full of compassion. What a treat to be in his company. This photo is one of my favorites of him and his late father.
