In the book, The Great Game by Peter Hopkirk he describes the history of the British and Russian Empires during the 19th and early 20th Century (Pre-October Revolution). The British Empire during that time faced their own Waterloo at the Khyber Pass. Your journeyman for this blog is experiencing a transition, not unlike the British in 1919. I am between many things, covered only by the shadows of the San Fernando Mountains; I am between jobs (and looking for a new career), between beliefs (a Jew who enjoys going to Bel Air Presbyterian Church) and worried about my own purpose in life. Through this blog, I hope to find my way, out of the pass and out of the Valley of the Shadow.
And let's not forget that I fully embraced my Goth side after 2008 (the Plague Year and Shaking the Disease). With that, I opened up many doors. Here in LA, I play "Alderman to the LA Goths," How will that turn out?
I usually put my favorite posts on my "Best of..." End/Beginning of New Year. [See Sidebar]
My question to all my loyal readers, what was your favorite post? What do you find here in this Valley that you don't find in other Blogs?
And before I leave this post, my favorite Gothy Muse so far (yes, Rule 5 with Tip Jar here):
