Hey Oh! Today is All About Me

Greetings, fellow people!

Today is my birthday (I’m double nickels young), so this is my personal beginning of a new year.

First up, who am I?

My name is Scott Story, and I am an author, artist, historian, Medievalist, introvert, mentor, musician, and student. I am not the student in any particular institute of higher learning, but I am an avid student of life.

What does that mean? Student of life? It equates to a couple of things. First, it means that no knowledge is wasted, so if I learn about subjects outside my bailiwick then that data is still absorbed and will probably surface at some point in my creative output. Second, it means that I pursue information on these subjects:

Medieval History, Zeppelins, World War II, Guitar, Bible History, Egyptology, Theology, Dinosaurs, the Paranormal, Mythology, Science, and so forth. When it comes to the paranormal specifically, I’m all for ghost stories, magick, the “real” history of mankind, Christian mythology, the ancient astronaut hypothesis, symbolism, UFOs, and whatever else grabs my attention.

A few caveats: Just because I study the paranormal does not necessarily mean I’m “believer.” What I believe is irrelevant. What makes mind-popping ideas, however, is the key, because my creativity is often fueled by wild ideas. I’m an artist and author, and fringe ideas really get me going.

A lot of people don’t understand the term “Christian Mythology,” so I’ll set the record straight. I’m Christian, always have been, always will be, that’s that. Still, there is a wide world of myths associated with Christianity that may or may not have a basis in reality. The Spear of Longinus? The Shroud? the Book of Enoch? The Wandering Jew? These are the very tip of the iceberg that is Christian Mythology. This is stuff that you won’t hear about in Sunday School! I love this stuff.

What else do you need to know about me? Um, I love cats, and just about all animals. I love going to antique malls, books stores, and art supply stores. I have a collection of teddy bears and toy dinosaurs. I am an Anglophile, and love most things British. I love trains, railroad history, and toy trains.

What else? I’ve always wanted to build a building from scratch. I’ve always wanted to learn blacksmithing, and medieval swordplay and fighting. I have always wanted a live-steam locomotive and railroad track for it. I’ve always wanted a Stratocaster Guitar, or a Les Paul Guitar, and a big tube amp. I always wanted to be in a rock band.

I think that about covers it. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s good for now.
