  1. Thank you for the follow. Are you into magic (the trickster kind), magick (the occult kind) or both?

    1. I write about magick, though I haven’t experimented with anything more than attempting astral projection 🙂 I work partly as a magician at restaurants and casinos and such, the trickster kind as you call it 🙂 Mostly, I’m a card mechanic. Are you into either?

    1. I read “Totally worthy fellow” and was glowing for about 8 seconds. 🙂 I still appreciate it, and you’re welcome – from what I’ve read so far, I’m really happy to have you in my reader!

  2. Many thanks for the follow on dragonshades. I totally agree about learning and living. I do have ‘qualifications” but all the really useful knowledge has come through self-study and an ongoing exploration of life. Lots of interesting things to explore here so I’ll be back!

  3. Janelle’s not going to get bored with you anytime soon, is she Matthew? I’m highly flattered that you’ve followed my blog. You don’t need any suggestions from me. Carry on enjoying life 🙂

    1. I love the way you write, and your pictures are awesome! So jealous – I’d love to leave the states and live elsewhere for a while, 10 years or so. (I’m pretty sure Janelle will be with me, though 🙂

  4. And I thought I had a lot of jobs. You’ve got most of us beat with paranormal investigator….;-). Thanks for following Wine and Cheese (Doodles), I hope to see you around!

  5. Thank you for the follow Matthew! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages.

  6. I love the range of your interests, and your approach to them — all the more reason for me to feel complimented indeed that you have chosen to follow my blog! thanks

  7. Thanks for the follow Matthew, really appreciated and welcome aboard. Feel free to comment, leave suggestions and generally be the positive guy that I see in your blog. Some great information in your blog and cannot believe the variety of jobs that you have undertaken. Fantastic. Best wishes and have fun, MM 🍀

  8. I love your perspective on life and learning! As you like to write maybe you might want to venture into taking part in flash fiction! Lovely blood rose, btw! And, a huge thanks Matthew for signing up to follow my blog! I hope that you will enjoy my posts! ^..^ – B

  9. Thank you for the follow, it’s very encouraging.

    P.S. You sound like you have had nearly as many jobs as I have, and in half the time!

  10. An amazing all-round individual with a beautiful wife. A pleasure to meet you and hope we exchange many posts in the future.

    1. Thanks! I’ll be reading you a lot – I made it a point to know the general ideas of all our wars but I have never dug into the details, so your blog is really interesting to me! Thanks for doing it. (And thanks for the compliments!)

  15. I know I’ve already commented, so what, here’s another. Thank you, thank you, for your generous comment on my About page.(Consider it Award-by-Comment, which is the kind I am happy to accept.) I hope you like the latest post just as well. Enjoy your winter.

  16. I just have one question…how OLD are you? Or maybe you’re immortal. You’ve done quite a lot for one lifetime! I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog 🙂

    1. Hi Melissa! I am 40 years old. If I were immortal I would probably be lazy 🙂 I’m hoping for 40 more active years. Thanks for the comment! I went for a long long time not having a television – that might be part of it 🙂

  17. Matthew, my kind of person. Thanks for visiting my author page and bringing me here. Fab meeting you and I hope we get to natter soon. 🙂
