OTTERWOLF

When I first joined STP, it was during the late spring of 2010, when I was still very much a part of ATWA [AIR TREES WATER ANIMALS] and believe me when I say that was a badge of honor, as the Big C, Sandy... supposedly all that mattered knew who I was, what I was about, and what I was doing as far as my eco work went....

My user name back then was Earth, which was my nickname a friend named Jennifer gave me "...because you are Earth" quite some time back, while I was driving her to the Bridgeport unemployment office.... and the name stuck.

But that was some time ago, and while for a brief moment I dreamed of moving to the U.P. of Michigan so I could canoe Lake Superior after watching a video my father gave me called Waterwalker several years ago, a back injury which is forever put an end to that, early this year.....

So, I did what anyone would have done, I shifted gears [actually, I already did so late last year seeing the future before me.....] and I bought a 2002 Monte Carlo SS project car, and before you ask, yes... she is crazy fast.

I was born in W.Berlin, in E.Germany back when The Wall was still new and very real.
While I grew up in NYC during the 1970s, 1980s.... by 1981, I would have taken my very last trip back to where I was from, which included time in the East, which changed my life forever.....

In NYC, because I was in the right place at the right time, I was for a brief moment a writer [as in graffiti....] and used to hit the R and F trains, along with the N....

Sometime around 1983, I got out of it, but at the same time I turned on a friend to the idea, and a few years later, he became REVS and the rest is history.

Around the same time, actually a little earlier... I fully immersed myself into the NYHC scene after seeing the UK Subs at CBs in December of 1982 if my memory serves me well, but a couple of years later I walked away from that, in favor of what remained from the tail end of the original downtown NYC art/music scene....

I consider myself one with a very open mind who cannot be bought.

I also value how I can see both sides of a situation, and can act accordingly if necessary.....

One thing I can't stand is those who remain narrow minded, and who refuse to consider anything other than what they have been programmed/re-programmed to believe.

At the same time, I deeply respect those who value Tradition, and while I am and was raised a Lutheren... for a good year now, I have had a deep respect and affinity with Chabad-Lubavitch .

As for who I am today, little bears any resemblance to who I was when I first joined STP, coming up on ten years ago, using a long deleted profile whose name I've long forgotten......

But it's all good, and I value my open mind and my ability to see things from different angles, and not be locked into one way of thinking.

The profile picture was taken on or about Valentines Day, 2011... at a time when my life was completely falling apart....
*Of interest, recently my dog turned 12 years old, and she continues to be a very special part of my life, and I cannot express enough gratitude and love to the generous individual* who allowed me to adopt Loki from her, and give her a proper home which she so desperately needed, where she could be safe and sound, properly loved and nourished, and also free....

*this humans name is/was Graven, and if anyone is in contact with her, please tell Graven that Loki is doing very well, and is my little best friend for life <3 <3 <3

The main picture was taken during Christmas of 2019, at Highland Lake... after a very fast pass up Route 8 just to see what she was capable of.

OK, and this is important: I deeply respect and support the STP community, as of late I have come to feel it is best for me to restrain from further comment, as my open views based on a life of experience tend to run contrary to those here, and this is something which deeply upsets me, because I am not looking to hurt feelings or do what is today labeled as victim blaming, quite the contrary !!

I love you all.............. xoxoxo

I used to have 3 Facebook pages running, of which one focused directly on our role with ecology, but I shut all 3 down after I found out my images of distressed wildlife were being used by others for their own agenda, which was very much contrary to mine. By doing so, this meant that about 4000 images documenting my work for the most part vanished without a trace. For the last couple of years of it's life, I maintained a Google+ page that contained 130 of those images, that page existed as a means for a human named Veronica to get a better idea of what I was about at that point in time. Since G+ shut down, this was all transferred to MeWe, where it all remains with very little input from myself at this point in time.

Tevye: [to God] You made many many poor people, I realize of course it's no shame to be poor, but it's no great honor either. Now what would be so terrible if I had a small fortune?

Mordcha: If the rich could hire others to die for them we, the poor, would all make a nice living.

Motel Kamzoil: Even a poor tailor is entitled to some happiness!

Perchik: In this world it is the wealthy who are criminals. Someday their wealth will be ours.

Golde: [singing] I don't remember growing older. When did they?
