Altars and then some

Altars and then some…



I normally do not share my private life with the public…I know, I know…What the shit are you saying!? Of course, you do, you are a public figure and have been interviewed by various (All) media since 1995!

Yes, that is completely true. However, droning, on and on and on, about being genetically engineered by Nature to be a blood drinker (Living Human Vampyr, or what the hell ever the kids are calling it these days) is but one facet of my entire Being.

For those who pay me any real kind of attention, you will have already noticed that I do not actually share intimate details about my life to the public (The Barcroft 2013 Documentary and the Book-Something in the Blood-aside). I certainly do not share intimate details about my everyday life, as awesome as it usually is. 😉 Lol.

So, I have been working on my new Hallowe’en Video for 2017, which, by the way, the theme for this year’s video is a bit more personal. So, I needed to snap a few pics of my Autumnal Altar to include in the video. Since I am including this private part of my life in the video, I decided to go ahead and share this private aspect of my life with my social media friend’s list…the public.


My altar might not be what many people would expect. I rarely buy anything for my altars (I have many throughout my house. Some of them most people would not even think were altars). I usually gather from my current environment, whatever Mother wants me to find. I always incorporate human blood, on every single altar I create. I do not care about the “wow” factor or the looking as “dark” as possible factor. All that matters to me, is that my altars reflect the truth of who I am. Showy statues, elaborate this and that, expensive or “authentic” this or that, are meaningless, to me. What I have lived, what I have suffered, what horrors and joy that I have turned into wisdom, what truths I keep finding about myself and our world, and always…the ugly darkness that has always touched my life, that I breathe in, absorb, absolute, transform and then breathe back out into the Universal Continuum, are always first realized at the Altar of my entire Being, then, created as a physical Altar for remembrance of said truths.

These photos were taken about an hour ago. This is my most recent Altar. This is the Altar in my studio. This is the Altar that receives all of me and helps me send out that which I hope (but, actually, mostly know it happen) will continue to transform within our Universe and be a ripple of change…forevermore.


Thank you for taking a moment to share this very private post with me.

Always, always, see, understand, & embrace the simple first. Why? Because, as far as I have lived and experienced…the simple is the truth, of most everything.
Certainly of the ALL.
