I was invited to take a look around, and I like what I see. I am a real vampyre, spiderkin, and at age 13 started studying the left path, The Illuminati, and many other things....I am a great fan fo 'The White Goddess" by Robert Graves.
About Myself and My interests
I was born awake to my vampyrism, and am an originating member of the West Coast Punk Rock and Goth Scenes. I am now 55 and still active in the OVC.
My Teachers and Influences
Alistair Crowley, Robert Graves, Lord Byron, All the Saints, Catholicism, My Father (A scottish Mason) All paths, Vampyrism, Myself, My husband, and God.
Hmmm, that's a bit lofty for me at this point. I have learned to live in the present in Gestaltian terms I suppose. I am quite ill, so getting better is a goal, and moving to KY to live with my 'soul mate' is another goal at present.
