Who is Morgan Drake Eckstein?

Who is Morgan Drake Eckstein?
Given the fact that I might be recieving some readers from The Pagan Mom Blog (where I am doing a guest post tomorrow---July 26th 2011), I thought it would be a good time to ponder that age-old question: 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.
