dj otterson : Born and raised in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Married. Divorced. Raising a ten year old (Rachel). (Rachel's mother ran off to California and joined a cult, got out, remarried and is trying to straighten herself out.) Rachel may be handling this better than he is. He works for a Security agency, would rather be an all night guard somewhere than 'the designated scape goat' who has to do the scheduling and handle the last minute sick calls. (Scorpio Sun, Sagittarius Moon, Aquarius Ascendant.)
Jim Wellington : Born and raised mostly in Stratford, Connecticut. ('Only town in the universe with no personality whatsoever-') [ Stratford is the home of the Shakespeare Theatre, which nearly died of neglect. ] Jim has lived in Vermont, (He says, "Spending a couple formative summers in Vermont probably saved my life, or at least my sanity... or maybe my lack of faith in the word 'Sanity'(?)" ) , New Hampshire ("Where I learned that there are *LOTS* of intelligent and caring people in this country."), New York State ("Once you get away from NY City New Yorkers are sane, friendly, usually intelligent, and very much worth knowing.") and spent a few months thinking he could live in Alaska ("Alaskans are either Great or Dangerous, and some are both."). He's been writing creatively since he finished his first (non school assignment) story in sixth grade. Currently painting houses and taking a crash course in practical 'HTML'. (Virgo Sun, Aries Moon, Cancer Ascendant.)
Harris : (Dream
Cat) Born in Geneva Switzerland, Grew up in the Ottawa (Ontario, Canada)
area, Cathi is an Artist, writer, poet, singer, songwriter, web developer,
Mom of 2, and Contracting Officer.(Not necessarily in that order). (Aries
Sun, Pisces Moon, Gemini Ascendant.)
We will have a kid's page soon.
We do not want to publish anything here that would upset any children or their parents. (We're already talking about the possibility of a 'sister site' for our more mature readers. (Both of them?) :) We've never published anything that we didn't believe had literary or social merit.
When we get any submissions from kids, we will try very hard to publish something here from any child who sends us stuff. (If a mother would stick it on a refrigerator, we'll publish it.)

If you submit any Scanned or Digital Photographs, Scanned images of Paintings or other Drawings, please reduce them to manageable size before emailing them. (You can tell us how large the original is, we can't promise to publish anything as large as we would like, but we'll try to ensure that you will be happy with the way we present anything you send us (If we have the space).)
Eleanor (OohSparklyShiny) is a very real person, an Artist, a ponderer of significant thoughts and feeler of significant feelings. She is currently blessing the Alexandria, Virginia area with her presence (and presents?) and illuminating lots of lives on the infp-general "list". If you have no idea what that means, well, it's a safe place for INFP type people to hang out and play in the almost virtual world of modern email technology... where they won't confuse and irritate people of other, less tolerant types.
Trouble D Phoxx : 'Trouble the Fox' was Jim's nephew's invisible buddy as a child. dj liked the name so much he adopted it as a pseudonym (Are we supposed to admit that?)
Stanley Freeboingen : (The Original Stanley Freeboingen is a character in one of Jim's [unpublished] whackier Science Fiction / Fantasy novels.) (Our 'Stanley Freeboingen' teaches Psychology at a rather large University and has already had too many run-ins with the administration to let anyone there know he's got anything to do with a bunch of lunatics like us.) (However- as it appears we may suddenly become 'respectable', 'Stanley' may soon enter the site without the wig, the funny nose & glasses, and without that funny beard (which he never seems to get in place).
Mary Ellen S. : [(As of August 23, 1999)] Is a real, soon to be ten year old, young woman who, we have heard lately, is now keeping a journal of her deepest thoughts. This should be highly publishable in the near future. We wonder if we'll have to find her a pseudo nym, too. We'd like to se her have a normal, happy childhood. (If those two are not mutually exclusive these days.)
Joan Pond : Is another real person. She's got a Doctorate in Psychology, helped create the Literary magazine at her High School, has been writing lots, has a couple books published, and, after churning out short stories for years tapped into an undiscovered deposit of poetry a year or so ago and has had poetry gushing forth ever since. (dj, who's been quite proliffic all along said, "She's putting us to shame," with her output.)
: is an Artist, living in the Connecticut Hills. Next time we get
our hands on a scanner we will scan in his original submission. It will
look a lot better than it does now-
Poetry is real
easy to deal with. Send us lots.
Fiction is just
a little bit more difficult to post. Send it anyway.
