Welcome to my simple, personal spot on The Dark Network. I am an Administrator here, as well as a member just like everyone else. I'm here to help you, but to also enjoy my own membership. I appreciate getting to know new people who can engage me. People that interest me have a respect for language and their own written words. Along with that I am intrigued by those who are passionate in learning all they can about the things they love. I try to get on my webcam as often as I can here, that way people can really 'get' who I am. You can learn more about me by following my journal- and/or checking out my Member Pages. To the left there, that's me at the radio station in the mid-nineties. I was a DJ on the Far East Network/Armed Forces Radio and Television Network, Iwakuni, Japan. ☊ To the right is an old Marine Corps photo from 1992. I spent 8 years in, 1992-2000.

My personal adorations lie in:
Cartomancy (playing card divination, Tarot, and Lenormand): I don't read for other people. It's personal for me at this time, but I might branch out later. I started reading as a teen, but packed them away for more than 20 years in getting busy with life. In June 2019, I went back to the cards with a passion unlike ever before. I am working on collecting decks and have started an Instagram account for cards specifically. As of April 2020, I have 47 Tarot decks in my collection. That's not even a lot compared to many serious readers.
Spain- oh so passionate about Spain! Never been there but dream of it daily.
Theology- I am Episcopalian/Anglican, "Protestant, yet Catholic". A progressive Anglo-Catholic, of the open-armed persuasion, with a Preterist view. Yet- my spiritual life is an utter labyrinth.
I adore classic literature and ancient accounts of life. I initially joined with hopes of being considered as one of the well-known writers here, but that never came to pass. Although I write a lot in my journal (if you've any interest in knowing me- that's where it's going to happen), I rarely share any of my personal work here. It happens from time to time, just not often. But, again, I am contributing quite a bit to the Member Pages here. Khalil Gibran, Walt Whitman, Langston Hughes, and W. B. Yeats- are some of the writers I love. But I am also quick to marvel in the works of Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss.
A Clear Midnight THIS is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best.
Night, sleep, and the stars.
I am passionate about TRADITION holidays, ritual, pomp and circumstance, smells and bells, and all ancient things kept sacred.
"Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around." -Gilbert K. Chesterton
I came here, because I dig the legendary, mythological vampire. I'm a fictional vampire enthusiast. I've been a fan as long as I can remember. We can thank a 'Kindred: The Embraced' fansite for linking to Vampire Rave, and leading me here :) It's a very rare occasion that I don't like a vampire depiction in film or literature. I like them all because I respect a writer's freedom and I love hearing new ideas and creative renditions. Writers need not have boundaries, and when you're talkin' vampires... they shouldn't allow anyone to put limits on their imagination. Vampires after all and above all, parallel very real humanity- and humans are... always surprising.
My life so far has been rich and full. I've been blessed and continue to be.
