tantas Saudades...

Monday, May 05, 2014

Both the Historian in me and the casual wrestling fanatic (think this sounds ''oxymoronic'' just a tad? I care not!) that I may have been, once upon a red-shot moon, will be finding contentment this time as we go through archives centering around what was once known as ''professional wrestling'' - and is now simply called, in its current diluted circus-act form, ''sports entertainment''...

than with them... huh?

Born in the Age of Aquarius, destined to seek out truths in many an art form, trained as a historian and a journalist but truly a prose-lover... Luciano is out to dispel any clichés and reinvent them all both to the tune of a little something called the truth as also to his own image - being old-fashioned, he does not mind that distinction one infinitesimal tiny bit at all...! "There are two ways to spread the light; be the candle... or the mirror that reflects It." I have chosen to be the latter... okay? ~*~ "To be not only a seeker of light... but a dream weaver of light" ~*~ For as surely as the moon reflects the light from the sun, you and I can reflect the Light from Above - and be, indeed, the light of this world! ~*~*~*~
