I really, really, really, really dislike writing these “About Me” sorts of things.
Its kind of funny, because it isn’t as though I have a problem talking about myself. Something about writing it makes me feel slimy. I suppose that writing, for me, is such a pure thing and I…well, I am about as pure as a Catholic pissing into the Lourdes while eating beef during Lent.
Still, if it is obligatory (to some degree) I shall oblige.
I am Adam Kristofer Walkingstick King (yes, my mother’s maiden name, “Walkingstick,” is on my birth cert and, yes, it is Cherokee) but I go by so many names these days I don’t particularly care what I am called. You may refer to me as Pollux, George, Lykeios, Caterpillar, Your Majesty, His Omnipotence the Benemalevolent Prince Polydeukeios of Gaea, or by my real name and I do not mind. Still, names are important, so there it is.
Born and raised in Clovis, California I was always encouraged to read (and started at a fairly early age), write, play music, sing, and generally express who I am as a person. I suppose that had more than a fair bit to do with why I am now an anarcho-socialist Hellenic Polytheist writer while I was raised in non-denominational Christianity by lightly conservative parents.
In any event, I love writing, reading, and anything to do with the arts and language. I am an aspiring polyglot and fairly talented mimic. I speak a bit of many, many languages. Most notable is my Spanish, French, Japanese, Gaeilge (yes, Irish Gaelic), and, English (which is indeed my first language).
I look forward to, hopefully, enlightening, encouraging, and otherwise entertaining you with my crazy antics.
Oh, and I am also a recovering addict with, ooh! distraction!, and possibly bipolar disorder type 1, so if I seem all over the place…its just the caffeine. (nyah nyah!)
