About Me

I'm still unfolding as a person. Every couple years or so I think I have myself figured out...then I surprise myself again. I'm slowly but surely expanding my horizons, and the sun of truth is beginning to peek over the rim of my dark little world and shed some light into it. Preconceived notions of life and living in it, in me not of my choice but more of sensory adaptation from my adolescence, are constantly fleeing my soul to be replace by the harsh, bitter, beautiful reality of it all. It's definitely an exciting journey.

I find pleasure in the little things that most people take for granted, like the complexity of a single snowflake, or the way water flows over stones, or the way a baby will latch onto your finger as if it's holding on for dear life. I like going through life slowly, taking time to observe and appreciate everything I pass. I feel sorry when I see people who are hell-bent on controlling their own futures and therefore leave the present behind. No one knows the future, it is obscured in uncertainty. Why chase after it? It will always elude them. Yesterday is gone. Today is all we've got left, and it's all we will ever have.

If you want to know more about me, feel free to ask.

About my story that's on this site...

I've finally posted all of part 1 of Winds of Change up here...still some tweaking to do, but for the most part I can finally concentrate on part 2, when things really start to heat up.

I've featured Chapter 2 because it seems everyone only reads chapter 1 and never moves on. That's not just with my story...that happens a lot. So maybe featuring chapter 2 will help people to continue the story. Believe me, it's worth it. (Well, I guess I can't really talk)

Oh I love lovecraft. My favorite would have to be Re-Animator followed closely by Pickman's Model. I'm actually finishing Call of Cthulhu right now. Which of his is your favorite?

Heya! Thanks for the review -- with a little luck, I should have more up soon.

I'm building up a list of material from the group to look at...anyplace you'd like me to start for you?

Hey Andy, I was reading your essay about "evil" in the Wood Beyond The World page, and felt inspired to write about the subject myself. It's something I feel strongly about, so I wanted to share these views....any feedback would be welcome!
Also, I'm really starting to enjoy "Winds Of Change" (I'm on Ch. 5).

Oh, if you want to wait a week or so before reading my Tangled Thread stuff, check out my Elegy series. It takes place on the same island but 500 years (cycles) after Tangled Threads.

Right now you have just a smattering of stuff because of the previous group was part of. I had to submit a piece less that 5000 words every two weeks but most of my initial chapters are longer than that. But the first two chapters of the main series is Fryen Meithe and Sedanta. Check them out first, the rest is just filler :-)

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the lovely comment! I'm not when I'm posting more. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so when I feel I can't do any more tweaking it will find its way on here lol. Hope things are going good with Winds Of Change, I'm hoping to do some reviewing soon.
