      I was born in Baltimore, Maryland. I noticed that Parkville is a suburb of that city. I root for the Ravens and Lamar Jackson.

        Indeed! Parkville is a suburb of Baltimore! I was born in Baltimore as well, though I split my time between Rosedale and Manchester, PA!

        Do you know Dale Lehman by any chance who also lives in the Baltimore suburbs. He's a friend of mine, who once ran a forum called Planet Baha'i for which I was a host or moderator if you like.

      The avatar is the Bird of Glory by by Misha Maynerick. I like it. I don't recall seeing you here before, but when I look at your profile posts you've been pretty active, it appears, at least in posting profile posts.

        Yes, it is! And it’s beautiful, no doubt, Truthseeker. As a person who has strong poetic leanings, I appreciate the use of symbolism, metaphors, analogies, and allusions in the Bahá’í Writings!

      After a brief spiritual journey to the Land of the Rising Sun, I, the young poet Athanasius, endeavor to return to the Painted Porch.

      The youthful poet, guided by his inner Divine Spirit, slowly awakens from his stupor of vice.
