Now, just past 30, I still relish the odd, the unexplained and the creepy.

When I can, I watch
The X-Files . . . Profiler . . .Millenium . . . Forever Knight . . .
                                  and the reruns of the old programs that my 50+ channels provide.

Granted, I'm softer, kinder and wiser.

I can't watch the evening news most nights
because the cruelties that
                                                      normal people visit on other normal people
make my heart ache.
I'd rather contemplate mysteries I can nearly comprehend.

There is, of course, a melancholy aura about many of my interests.

It may be true that ghosts are the trapped and tormented souls of  victims of circumstance.
This saddens me.
It may be true that reports of aquatic monsters and yeti and fae are sightings of the last of vanishing breeds.
This saddens me.

It may be true that human monsters like Dahmer and Gein are products of their environments.
This saddens me.

It may also be true, however, that knowledge  can contribute to the eradication of  some of this sadness.

The Web, in three days, has provided me with information on,
and connections to,
                                               that for which I have spent years searching.

In my searches, I do not mean any disrespect to those that have suffered pain, confusion or terror
at the hands of  some of the figures I am pursuing.
I mourn for the victims and, often, the perpetrators
                                                                         of  violent acts.

Still, I will continue to try to gain an understanding
                          of some of  the situations and characters that exist
                                                                                    outside the boundries of our civilized world.
Doing so is my way of whistling a happy tune in the dark.
The dark exists,

               in our world
                            in our minds
                                                in our history . . .

like it or not, it is ours to explore.

It is difficult to offer proper credit for a page that was constructed in a
3-days-and-nights-in-a-dark-mood-obsessive state.
