Collinsport, Maine

Bio: Actor/writer/comedienne and well-nigh miffed with the lack of communication on the internet to support enjoyment rather than hate-mongering and time-wasting. ______________________________ Mission Statement: Communication with the lonely and the suffering first and foremost. Secondary? Healing Collinsport. Occupation: actor/writer/comedienne (Yes, here you will see the text, but that is not all that I do.) Previous occupations: High School Teacher for (Severely) Emotionally Disturbed High School students. Vision Therapist. (VT is much like Physical Therapy, but for the eyes and comprehension of what is seen and understood. This incorporates practices like Occupational Therapy as well.) Readings in audio for librivox.org. The main purpose in posting here is to keep The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows audio project going. For me reading is not something to do to waste time but to enhance and enrich one’s purpose and being. I do not see conflict as the sole purpose of story-telling. I create morality plays that contain humour. Humour provides stimulus to the brain that increases the capacity for memory. For some of us text isn’t the best way of imbibing literature clearly. For some audio is not only better but necessary. (Much testing is provided in audio for this reason.) Reviews for me are not to gain popularity nor get a wider audience but to understand the view points of my audience’s enjoyment and maintain an organized record of it. Also, as a comedienne, most of the purpose in sharing one’s humourous work is to see the audience’s reaction. In over three years of giving my best I rarely see or hear that reaction. Most of what I do see is shy people too nervous to say much, folks hoodwinked that reviews mean they have to be something on the order of Siskel & Ebert (no thanks) or looking for every last flaw in the world to result in bash-critiquing. I also see people being distracted with trying to imbibe too much online and losing the ability to comprehend much nor correspond harmoniously with each other. This is a severe problem as our current technology and advanced mode of living has been created mostly with the ability to communicate and correspond efficiently, as well as for the pleasure of each others company. (In so many words, we are spitting on our ancestors gifts to us: the future generation they longed to know would succeed and thrive.) The characters I have adopted to channel into my psyche takes a great deal of concentration and effort. If you’ve ever watched documentaries on how such artists maintain the ups and downs, as well as the high-stress level of performers you’ll find I work in the same way. The only difference is I do it for free, as well as spend what money I have on it. This is not said to impose guilt on anyone, but to explain for the hope you will understand what you are getting in my work and struggle. Also, I do not own a car. I stress this because many people do not recognize what kind of a “universe” that leaves a person in socially. They are often neglected and left to a cold online world that keeps managing to get colder and more aloof or petty. If some bloggers and writers wish to see numbers and make up some idea of what others are thinking? Not my problem. Popular opinion? Again, not my problem. The human heart in conflict with itself? That’s my problem, as well as seeking to help others with loneliness, depression or any other ailment which creates a feeling of abandonment. There are too many of us alive with this kind of technology that such things should be left to “just happen”. I prefer an engaged group of people who are going to share the journey and their perspective because discussion and consultation is important to me as well as the growth of ability in others. So is problem-solving, which is what this Spooky Multi-Fandom with a Dark Shadows base is all about. How do we stop making things worse, wallowing, complaining or pretending it’s all fine, and begin isolating how to take the tools provided and build community again? Book club style is where I’m at. I hope you are too. ________________________________________ Well, I guess it's time to focus on pen pals more now that the proof is in the pudding. The internet for "The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows" is likely off-balance, though worth the attempt. The postal service must be it's true source of connection. I hope I catch the postman next time he drops by. I can't wait to tell him. 🙂 Like to write letters and get mail? Me too.

    I think I’ll update this “About” page someday when I can think of a way to aptly express the horror sharing the hardest work of my life online and finding out the human-world went super-downhill in so many ways that this trauma is going to linger for quite a long time. (((Sigh)))

    Hey there… could you guys, like, you know, send me an email with a kind of letter-format of longer discussion that people used to do?

    This jumping around to all the various links and log entries and desperately trying to get the Mommy Internet version of answers about who I am is… well… It’s rather disproving the whole point of the bloody internet at all.

    Or you could ask me questions on this About page, too! Maybe a WP account would be worthwhile somehow. Maybe.

    All I know these days is I get way better discussion and help from pen pals on paper and by email. I went back to “square one” and by golly: It still works! 🙂

    Now that I’ve thought of a better way to express the purpose of this online journal, I shall.

    Beyond everything else listed, once upon a time I began, per advisement, using various sites to advertise my story and show content, and also to have something to do while I waited, and waited, and waited, and waited for folks to speak up about the radio drama narrative, episodes, and what they were enjoying.

    I was also attempting to look for answers of why they had not done so for years already.

    As one can see? I was waiting a LONG time. Meanwhile I got to experience the ineffable time-wasting via what is termed as “social media”, which managed to whisk away good friends and companions I’d had for decades, and also the various contacts I began making in 2014, with it’s addictive and dependent methods.

    At this time I have had the good fortune that ethical technologists in computer electronics, who are deeply concerned, came forward to form The Center for Humane Technology and I began to get the answers from them that I was seeking for years. (Bless their hearts!)

    I also decided, “Sod this for a lark!” and went back to Square One in communication: pen pals. It’s all been a bumpy road with storms mightier than even our good Captain Gregg can conjure. But I suppose ones’ Providential purpose in life is never apparent until they are nearly half finished with their presumed life-expectancy. (((relieved sigh))) ❤
