|Who is Morgan Drake Eckstein?|
Ok, maybe it is just an age-old question from my viewpoint.
One, I am a rabble rouser. Or at least, I try to be. Or maybe it is just being a frustrated comedian.
Definitely, the last one.
Two, I am a pagan and a Wiccan. I have also been a member of Golden Dawn since March 1992. Not a member of the "true" Wicca or Golden Dawn---it is more along the lines of those branches of the traditions that you find trying to lure people into dark alleys---you know those Adepts and Witches that your parents and gurus warned you about.
Some people think that I am leader in one or both traditions. I am not. I am just someone that writes a few columns focusing on Golden Dawn, Wicca, and astrology. Think of me more as an entertainer (frustrated comedian) than a leader.
Some people would point out that I am an elected officer in a Golden Dawn lodge. My job? To scare off people. *Gets handed a piece of paper* Oh. Yeah. I guess. I have just been informed that I am wrong. My job is to lure you into a dark alley and convince you to be a member of both Wicca and Golden Dawn.
I occasionally cover news stories that concern Wicca and Golden Dawn. I tend to focus on those stories that make me spitting mad or that I can make a good joke about. My formal journalist training is that I have talked to a professor of journalism on a couple of occasions. My on-the-resume journalist experience is that I have worked for a college newspaper. I would rather put the articles I have written for occult magazines (all local and small) on my resume instead, but you are not supposed to do that if one is seriously trying to get hired.
I fancy myself a writer. And an artist. And a photographer. And a comedian. Obviously, I am delusional. All four delusions show up regularly on this blog.
And I think that is about it.
So the answer to the question of "Who is Morgan Drake Eckstein?" is that MDE is a frustrated comedian, who has delusions of creative greatness and just happens to be a Wiccan and a member of some evil branch of the Golden Dawn.
