Today is the day. Time for a long coming gear shift for this blog and for me.
Announcement time! (Two of them, actually.)
First up – After ignoring the idea for about a year, I have decided to launch an Along A Different Path podcast. You can find the link to Episode 1 below! Come join me as I discuss, rant and ramble about all manner of paranormal subjects. Each episode will be approx. 20 minutes long and will focus on a particular topic for discussion, experience to share or information to pass on. In time, hoping to get questions and topics from the audience as well as having some special guests and interviews.
Episode 1 – The Dark Cave
I wanted to say that I know there are a lot of quality podcasts out there already working with this subject matter. It means a lot to me that you chose to take some of your time to listen to this one. Thanks!!!
Not a whole lot to add for this one as I pretty much left it all at the mic. For this episode I wanted to give an introduction of where we were going, discuss the fears I had to fight through and give a very brief introduction to who I am and how I became involved in all of this. As this was my first dip into podcasting I would definitely like to hear feedback so don’t be shy.

Intro and Outro music “People Are Spinning” done by Monplaisir at Loyalty Freak Music from their album, To Chill and Stay Awake. I found it on Free Music Archive. Huge thanks to him for making free music for folks like me to use to enhance my podcast. Give it a listen!
I’m very excited about this project, more excited then I thought I would be. Initially, I was a nervous wreck but after numerous test runs I finally recorded the final run and the minute I was done I felt a rush of excitement. (As of Wednesday, as I write this, the day is draaaaaaagging on. ) I have a lot of material to cover and I’m looking forward to where it takes me. All I know is that I want to have fun with it and share my passion on the multitude of topics available.
What does that mean about this blog? I will be posting the podcasts here, of course, and my wish is for this blog to remain just as it is, a vehicle for the combination of written word and pictures. I’ll post podcast announcements, etc, here as well. This blog will continue to function as is for the foreseeable future and if I get the inspiration for some fun bits and bobs that need pictures and perhaps written instead of audio commentary, I will post them here.
The second announcement?
It’s a subtle thing but, for me, a lot longer coming than this podcast. If you check up at the author of this post, you’ll start seeing a different name there. Matter of fact, if you’ve already listened to the podcast, you might have caught it. As of this posting, it will automatically change over on all of the posts of this blog as well as on the About page. I’ll be going through the next few days and tightening everything up.
This is a very resolute decision which comes from a deep sense of wanting to walk in wholeness again. Many, many years ago I used to do this. I cared little what people thought or how they might react to my interests. Something changed along the way. Regardless of how it occurred, it’s source was fear. Was it wise to follow this fear? Perhaps! I may never know. All I know is that things needed to change back.
Many things have shifted for me in the past year that have led me to this point and this decision. I’ll be going into more detail in an upcoming podcast where I will focus on those fears as well as discussing the very legitimate reasons some folks need to stay behind a different identity.
And that, they say, is that!
I look forward to more podcasts to come and hopefully hearing from some of you regarding the content. Thanks so much for being here on what is, for me, a pretty big day.
Happy Harvest and Happy Autumn to each and every one of you and to our friends South of the equator, Happy Spring!
