Who the hell am I?

So, ya little monster, you're curious.  Remember what that did for the cat?

Okay, so I'm not nearly as bad as the lead in makes me sound.  My real name is Mike, but you can call me Vampyral.   Basically put, I am an artist who works mostly in the written word, but have done some visual diplays in the form of hand made posters and smaller pictures.  My writing varies from the macabre, obviously, to that which deals in recovery from a number of disabilities I sustained as a result of a head injury.  I also write a lot in the spiritual arena, with Christianity being my background.  I have studied other faiths as well, but I am a Christian.  I aslo do healing work with oils, stones, herbs, metals and prayer.  Primarily I work in the healing art of Reike a the Master Level.  I was tuned into Reiki in studying to be a massage therapist, which I was, until having fibromyalgia made the work no longer possible.
It's always good to have you drop in, but don't drop any wooden stakes.

I might also include some information about my personal history: where I grew up, where I went to school, various places I've lived. If I have one, I'll include a picture of myself engaging in an activity I enjoy, such as a sport or hobby.

What a job!

I might describe my job in a little more detail here. I'll write about what I do, what I like best about it, and even some of the frustrations. (A job with frustrations? Hard to believe, huh?)
