    Hi everyone! My name is Perry and this is actually the 2nd time I have introduced myself on this forum, however the last time I did was nearly 8 years ago! I let my membership lapse many years ago when a change of job limited my time online, but now I'm back! I hope to reinstate my citizenship soon, but in the meantime, here is a little about me:

    While my realy name is in fact Perry, I choose to go by the name Taven Birne on fantasy forums, as it is the name I use for video games, D&D, etc.

    I am a theatre educator in Charlottesville, VA, and I LOVE the Wheel of Time series! ( I am sure that I am the only person here that can say that, hardy har har). I am planning on another re-read beginning in January, and I want to use this forum to explore themes that I may not have noticed on my last re-reads. Also, I miss the games, so there's also that.

    Feel free to drop me a line and say hello, I am usually pretty good about replying to mssages. I can't wait to get to know you! Now comes the fun part, finding an avatar!!!

    Welcome back! If you ever have any questions, feel free to send me a PM. :welcome

    One of my favourite people ever was a high school drama teacher and deacon. Together with him--sometimes with his wife and kids--and our parish priest we played traditional Irish music for small venues. He was very involved in the music at our parish and is a terrific reader. Now that I think of it, his wife is also a drama teacher. Perhaps different from what you do, but I do hold theatre arts in high regard.

    What a wonderful memory! I don't play music very often, as I don 't have any talent as an instrumentalist, but I do love to sing and try to do that as often as I can. I think they all fall into the same category of storytelling. Whether it is music, dance, theatre, or oratory it all tells a story in some form!
