cu-smidt

that would be "hound of smidt" 

When I was five I thought I was a dog.  I thought that some day I would wake up and I would be a dog.  I never did (obviously). 

 

I started writing in 2001 – in April, because I didn’t have the money to buy a friend a birthday present.  The bad guys in that piece (that is still unfinished – but someday I may go back and finish it) were werewolves. 

 

Why? 

 

Because all of my life I had read anything I could get my hands on about Canid shape changers  - I’m Irish a HUGE amount of Irish stories involve turning into a dog of a wolf.  I’m also Iroquois so there are any number of coyote and Wolf stories there too – the Iroquois Trickster was Raccoon – Coyote just could never walk the path of war (he sucked at lacrosse too)

 

Most of my stories touch on werewolves in some way and if they don’t – well lets take ‘Chaps’ it takes place in Bathory a city set up to favor werewolves (or at least that’s how the wolves see it).  In fact Autumn is the first person I’ve met in Bathory who is ‘normal’ – although she seems to have fallen in love in 4 and a half seconds.  And you know I don’t care how good you are – you can’t just cut freehand like that (in the real world he’d get the chaps back and they would be all wrong)

 

Anyway – since this week is already sucking a song that always calms me down  (or part of it )

 

 Of Wolf And Man Lyrics by Metallica

 

bright is the moon high in starlight

chill in the air cold as steel tonight

we shift

call of the wild

fear in your eyes

it's later than you realized

 

(shape shift) nose to the wind

(shape shift) feeling I've been

(move swift) all senses clean

(earth's gift) back to the meaning, Back to the meaning of...LIFE

 

I feel a change

back to a better day

(shape shift)

hair stands on the back of my neck

(shape shift)

in wildness is the preservation of the world

 

so seek the wolf in thyself

 

(shape shift) nose to the wind

(shape shift) feeling I have been

(move swift) all senses clean

(earth's gift)back to the meaning, back to the meaning of wolf and man
