For my bio, um...what to write... How about a quote or 25? And some song lyrics for good measure...
"Faithless is he who says farewell when the road darkens."

"Postern of Fate:
Pass not beneath, O Caravan,
Or pass not singing. Have you heard
That silence where the birds are dead,
Yet something pipeth like a bird?"
"This is the Hour of Lead-
Remembered, if out lived,
As freezing persons recollect the snow-
Then the letting go--"
"Ensanguining the sky
How heavily it dies
Into the west away;
Past touch and sigh and sound
Not further to be found
How hopeless underground lies the remorseful day."
- John Houseman
"And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
Song break: Heathcliff, it's me Cathy, I've come home, I'm so cold! Let me in-a-your window. Heathcliff, it's me Cathy, I've come home, I'm so cold! Let me in-a-your-window." Hayley Westenra
Song Break II: You're everywhere, like the rain that's falling. You're everywhere, like the wind that's blowing. You're everywhere, like the sun upon my face, I feel the warmth in Your embrace. You are everywhere.--Third Day
Song Break III: Come, oh come! let us away- Lower, lower every day, Oh, what a joy it is to race Down to find the lowest place. This is the dearest law we know- "It is happy to go low." Sweetest urge and sweetest will, "Let us go down lower still." Hear the summons night and day,calling us to come away. From the heights we leap and flow To the valleys down below. Always answering to the call, to the lowest place of all. Sweetest urge and sweetest pain, to go low and rise again.--Hind's Feet on High Places
Song BreakIV: "When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down; when I was sinking down, sinking down. When I was sinking down, beneath God's righteous frown, Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul. Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.--Alexander Means
Song BreakV: "And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight, The clouds be rolled back as a scroll, The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend. "Even so," It is well with my soul."--Horatio G. Spafford.
Song BreakVI: "I'm only alive with You. I can't get by and I won't get through. So put me in the river, let me say, 'I do'. I'm only alive with You."--Jars of Clay
Song BreakVII: "The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees. The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas. The road was a ribbon of moonlight, over the purple moor, and the highwayman came riding-riding-riding. The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door."--Alfred Toynes and Loreena McKennitt
