This is actually my second introduction. I had an account here some time ago, but for some reason was unable to either login again (something I
hadn't done for a long time) or retrieve my information, and so after months of lurking, I decided to once again join the discussion of this bright
and vibrant community that I've always so enjoyed.
I'll say just a quick bit about me. I'm a Texan, born in Pennsylvania. I graduated from West Point and served as a helicopter pilot in the Air
Cavalry (flew the OH-58D) with the 82d Airborne. A parachute accident and subsequent injury put me out of service after 5 years. I actually held an
extremely high security clearance while I was in because of some work I did in intelligence, but don't let that mislead you into thinking that I know
anything more than anyone here, most of my work was mundane analysis done many years ago and all highly compartmentalized.
After my time of service and some traditional white collar work I experienced a profound spiritual awakening (like so many of us here) and really
abandoned a traditional life. I subsequently performed music professionally in Hollywood and then across the nation as a rather pervasive
troubadouresque traveler. I've just arrived back in Fort Worth and am starting a new band here which I've decided to call THE ELECTRIC PRIEST, and
hence describes the name I've chosen. I invite any interested to peruse my site at www.theelectricpriest.com if you'd like to see who I am or what
my music is about.
Other than that I won't wax overly verbose in this introduction, other than to say I'm glad to be back and very much look forward to engaging
everyone in the fun and interesting discussions that seem so relegated to this site and few places otherwise. I'll leave you all with one of my
threads from my former incarnation. I probably posted less than 2 dozen threads while I was on here, but once when I was in the shower (strangely
enough) something struck me that I felt so compelled to share with this community, and so I jumped out and penned the below thread with a tremendous
response! It seems as though I was able to tap into something resembling truth both within myself as well as the world around, and to my great joy
this community rewarded me with gusto and enthusiasm. Such wonderful feedback from such like-minded individuals was, to put it simply, self
confirming. God bless you all...
