Thanks for the warm welcome!
@Kahoku: yes - of course I brought cookies.....
@Elinox: no - there is no relation. Kahoka is my shamanic name, given to my by my teacher. The similarity to Kahoku is completely accidental, but it is the reason for putting the "Angel" into the screen name. I've met Kahoku at another board and we did have the name "problem" - I didn't want that to happen again.
+ Hanna: Calling me AK is fine - see above...
@Seraphyna: last year I've been initiated into a shamanic tradition. Part of the initiation process was meeting one's ancestors and recognizing one's origin. That was when I finally realized that I am an Angel - and I didn't take the easy way then, either.... *sigh*.... but all's well that ends well - and now I've made peace with being what I am.
