Hale and hearty wassail! Call me Seaxwulf. In the tug-of-war between metaphors, were I asked to choose between a picture and a thousand words, I would choose the thousand words, though I submit my art to you because most do not fancy to read my words.

I am a reasonably young Anglo-Saxon male, blessed to live in Northern New England during this, our Winter of the Wolf, heralding the decay of the West.

I am a Folkish Heathen and Ethnonationalist. You can expect that my work shall reflect this. Given that my first identifier is as Anglo-Saxon, you may expect also that my work will flow from this factor, or at least be coloured by the lore of my Forefathers' Folk, one and the same with the Folk I wish to see restored to former glory.

Interests

I recently had a brief conversation with my Mother which prompted me to write this. It follows that I was recently amused by a delightfully morbid little deviation.

As it went, the conversation was brief as it took place before Coffee and Breakfast, but the gist was this: I inquired whether she had ever read Lovecraft's work. She had. I asked if it was good. She responded that the popular consensus marked it as such. I reminded her that she does not account for popular consensus because she is her own person. She told me she enjoyed it, but found the work "rather in depth." I told her that this was not a problem for me, that I would have it no other way. I then expressed my interest in Lovecraft's history, upon how he was a pro-patriot to his Anglo-Saxon breeding and was aware of the mounting anthropological conundrums which arise from semi-consensual miscegeny, as well as his unique political assets. My mother then asked if I can enjoy reading anything without needing to know the character of the one composing the fantasy. My answer was "no." Why not? Always the question of the answer. But a good question.

Since I believe in Universal and Objective Morality (though the two may or may NOT be indistinct) it warrants stipulating: if it's good enough for me, it's good enough for you to consider.

First of all things. I like to fancy myself a rational thinker. All natural phenomena have natural explanations. Since drama is the highest expression of human existentialism, it warrants intense study. One can only gain deeper appreciation of their favourite literature by understanding the peculiarities of the author creating it - the same with art. This is because the author's mental traits and imprints account for the intricacies of the work in question. On the reverse, one can understand the author on the count of his writing. The power of literacy is very much an opiate, like religion, alcohol or political communism - it acts as an inebrient and compels folks to divulge that which they would not conversantly. Here the twain between dry, flaked and boring rationalism and wet, oozing and enthralling spiritualism is met. For in the work of a man's mind, which his tongue oft hides, his True-Self is spied.

Second. It is very much a spiritual exercise. If you understand things metaphorically, becoming an author, an artist, poet or weaver of a linguistically compatible demiverse, you have in effect undergone a minor apotheosis and become demiurge of your own creation. A very real part of yourself achieves temporal imortality through your work, you have created a doppelganger which lives through your legacy. If you are true to yourself, devotees of your alterverse might know you through your work and thereby achieve a sense of communion with the Oversoul. Or else gain an inkling of the Akashic records.

Thirdly and most charmingly. I am a humanist. In a sense, anyway. I love the human anomaly. It is a fascinating expression of Creation. That said, since a person leaves themselves in their work, by knowing their work I know the person. It would be morally disrespectful and parasitic of me to consume their work without giving thanks to the being that produced it. Much as most religious constructs demand that supplicants supply the Creators with thanksgiving, so we must acknowledge artisans of their craft. They did this by giving libations, offering prayers, or raising their level of consciousness to a mystical degree in which they were aware of their indebted status in the cosmos. I, for my part, honour minor creations by knowing the soul of the creator. In this way I feel kinship and communion with them, as if they could be reached in prayer - akin to the Catholic understanding of praying in communion with the saints. To do otherwise makes us no better than the Useless Eaters at your local General Assistance or Welfare office.

That's it. You may now kick the Soapbox out from under me and go about your business.
