To my best understanding, Cogitantis is Latin for Thinker. It is a way to say a lot personally with very few letters. My favorite pastime is to be still and think. I originally went by Independent Thinker, but found that such a handle often invites the argument of how “independent” I really was. With this new direction for my work, I shed the old name and will take on the new identity. As with many, I use an alias to protect my real life from the consequences of being fully truthful of my own thoughts and feelings. It is the sad reality that what is said and done online will often affect the way in which a man makes his living.
