Dark Melodies & Arcane Elixirs

The Heart's Doorway Opens at Midnight

"Theme Song" - Pink Love by Blonde Redhead

Fascinated and constantly driven and governed by establishing "higher self," core connections with select others, self-awareness, and authenticity - paths and objectives that are often avoided and feared by many.

These are journeys of strength; never for the faint of mind, heart, and spirit. These are journeys that will often result in isolation, loneliness, and great sacrifice.

A bohemian dreamer
An old and familiar soul
An intense light
A delicate arrangement of indescribable patterns
A complex clown of many sorts
A disturbing mirror
A lingering specter
A strange echo in a dark hallway
A startling collection of large colorful eyes
A forgotten butterfly that remembers everything
An addictive elixir
A face of love
A crashing wave
An atom of the universe
A tragic muse
A poem made of flesh, bone and blood
An unearthly cry
A tireless truth seeker
A scarlet rage
A misplaced toy
A restless spirit
A murderous stare
An epic embrace
An ornate box of curious delights
An Asymptotic Faery

Enlightenment--that magnificent escape from anguish and ignorance--never happens by accident. It results from the brave and sometimes lonely battle of one person against his own weaknesses.

- Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano, "Landscapes of Wonder"

"The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of childhood into maturity." - T. H. Huxley

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt
