Its difficult to say who I am right now. This past year in particular has brought significant change into my life & my soul. There are naturally some things that will always be true of myself. For instance, I am a writer and, whether or not I achieve commercial success, I will always be a writer. I stand behind my beliefs & my personal ethics, no matter how adversely it affects my life. I just think its foolish to compromise oneís own soul for the sake of physical comfort. The past year has taught me to keep my feelings hidden beneath a mask, but they are there nonetheless; Iím a sensitive, empathic person given to occasional moments of nostalgia and romanticism.
Iíve chosen my new screen name, because the character in Clive Barkerís Imajica spoke to me more than any other literary character I have ever encountered. In reading the passages about Pie-O-Pahís life and the nature of its species, I found myself identifying so much with the mystif that I often wondered if, somehow, the character had been based on my own life. Much like that character, I find myself in a state of constant change, some voluntary and some involuntary. I canít say who I will be in the future or where these changes will bring me, but it should be an interesting journeyÖand I welcome any who choose to join me for awhile.
