"The religion of one age is the literary entertainment of the next."
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am not a Druid, Taoist, Buddhist, Tantric or Neo-Pagan believer or worshipper.  I, Mike Garofalo, investigate these subjects out of literary, philosophical, historical, aesthetic, moral, and sociological curiosity.  I am a student of comparative religions.  I don't believe in supernatural beings and don't belong to any religious organization.  I find the topics listed below interesting from a metaphorical, figurative, literary, imaginative, and aesthetic viewpoint.
