What the? Gaius Marius? Obviously someone who is perhaps a little 'different" or some typical ancient history buff with eccentric tendencies. Ok I'm different for sure, just ask my offspring! But on occasion it has been mentioned to me that i write in an interesting manner and a genuine sense of heartfelt "realness".
Essentially i think i view myself as an emotional being, most definitely shaped by the many adventures i have experienced world wide. Some of those experiences to be honest occupy a lot of the deep back chambers of my "different" mind, so why the hell not express it. love it or just ignore it? but I know your going take a peek..
