It annoys me when some folk in my nation malign people for speaking Spanish. I believe it could help you broaden your horizons if you at least have a basic grasp of Spanish. Personally, I like the "sound" of Italian and Spanish more than that of English.

I agree! :o 

I'm certain most folk in the media will spend the overwhelming majority of their time covering suffering and "evil" all across the globe today. Your perception of reality is going to be distorted if this is your focus. Don't let these merchants of misery ruin it for you.

Remember, also, each day people get up and they; say a kind word, lend a...

Embracing one change, may open a door to a host of others. At times, I've been tempted by the siren call of the familiar to return to its false sense of security. I'm grateful I chose to forge ahead.

I use to be a fan of Sabbat - Lasombra back when I played VtM regularly. I still am, however I game infrequently. The photos are from an old collection of Carlo - Pignatelli's; when I saw them, Lasombra immediately crossed my mind. I may revise and expand this post later.
