"The fauns and sylphs, the household sprite, the moonlight revel, Oberon, Queen Mab, and the delicious realms of fairy-land, all vanish before the light of true philosophy; but who does not sometimes turn with distaste from the cold realities of morning, and seek to recall the sweet visions of the night?" - Washington Irving I'm a computer geek that has had the opportunity to see many places and many things. I have always enjoyed telling stories about the people I have met or the things I have seen - but have never had the courage to write them down and share them for all to see. I am finally fighting my fear and putting ink to paper (well, fingers to keyboard if I want to be literal.) Feedback is appreciated, but please be gentle.
