Good Morning Beautiful

Anno Lodin
or Through a Glass Darkly

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.

And though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.

Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Love never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

- King James Bible; 1 Corinthians 13

Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

Oh yeah, all right
Are you going to be in my dreams

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love
You make

-The Beatles

Prologue to a Nightmare
How I learned to hate myself and my kind

Mother of fucking Christ. If there’s one thing I take away from this it’s being a vampire is a goddamned nightmare. I thought being a Chicago police was tough. This? This is a curse.

I thought gays and women were petty. Seems like once you become a vampire, you lose all emotional control and turn into a raging asshole. Well, now I know the score, I’m going to find my sire and slit her pockmarked and boil covered throat.

Next on my Vampire to do list is get in good with the other Nosferatu. Everyone of them I’ve met has been a breath of fresh air in the mens room while there’s a fat son of a bitch shitting out his hot dog fetish during a Cubs game.

Animals have peace the way humans and Vamps could never understand. The mind of a rat is clear and unspoiled by the terrors they inflict on each other. I want to find my solace in communing with the animals of the city. It reminds me of my hikes around Waterfall Glen just after my wife’s death. Peace.

As I think of that, it reminds me of that Vampire with the kaleidoscope eyes. Man, I fucking hate the Beatles, sorry for that. Anyway, I need to find her again. In that moment of seeing her, I had that feeling of peace again… sorry from her, yes, but a peace which could be mined.

Christ, almost morning. Gotta go!

Geas Leak

Well this is a fine how do you do. Stupid necklace has me trying to rescue the VOICE OF DOOM from a hunter, and it seems a pack of werewolves, just freakin great. To make matters worse, I got to share the geas with my pals, so now we are in it to our necks, and no closer to finding Lodin ( although that seems like a shot in the dark in a different wolf infested zone).
Tim seems a bit confused as to his new station in unlife, and keeps knocking food outta our mouths, this will have to be addressed.
