New members, please take a moment to tell us all about yourselves. I will start; the persona under which this site is managed is called Alan J. Fisher; an Irish Brit who lives in Spain with his Dominican wife and twin daughters. I've travelled a great deal of the world and think that living as a guest in other countries truly does change how one thinks, very much for the better. I have also learned much since becoming a father and appreciate the little things a lot more though I do think differently about such things as mortality than I used to. I am 44 years old and have seen the world go through many changes in my life but I do think the rate of change is much faster than it used to be. Not all of that change is good but I think we are closer to our ultimate goal as the human race than we were before. I think having the Shadow closer makes him easier to defeat in the long run. I firmly believe that the Light humanity holds in its soul will eventually prevail.
