The date of March 20th, 2011, is my official 51st anniversary of being involved with cryptozoology. This year, on this date, I am in Point Pleasant. Tonight, I revisited the TNT, experienced dusk there, with the spring peepers singing at the lover’s lane area where it all began.
Casually, curiously, and unconsciously, I strolled into being a cryptozoologist after watching Half Human, reading Charles Fort (don’t forget, he has some great sections on sea serpents), Bernard Heuvelmans, and Ivan T. Sanderson.
Life choices were made, from what I read to where I went to school, from what I would write to where I would live, based on cryptozoology, oftentimes.
No doubt about it, my sons have always been my first priority, more than they may ever know, but in the background, between living baseball, taking them to Loch Ness, working with suicide prevention, teaching/researching at a university, making documentaries and more, has been cryptozoology.
So here I am working on a reality doc in Mothman country. How sweet that timiing is turning out to be? Very much so, it seems.
More this week about whom I meet here.
