Of a Quote about being Goth or Gothic~~~~
I came across this quote and of course it also includes Morticia, and I realized that in all my experiences I had to be in tune with and explore my dark side, even researching morbid subjects and understanding the evil convolutions of the human mind.
And having gone through horrendous tragedy, I know I've come out stronger.
I even celebrate my dark side, revel in it, but also to maintain some sort of balance I will also splash the light side into my soul as well, with a touch of kitties, puppies and butterflies.
But by knowing and understanding the dark side we then are never fooled by statements that are made to sound truthful but are lies, we are never fooled or are foolish.
THAT is what makes a person a true Elder Goth.
We don't have to wear black all the time or do our hair or makeup in bizarre styles, we don't have to do horrendous bizarre piercings to indicate we're Goth. That is simply outer trappings to appear outrageous, we don't even have to be into what ever music style the Goth community is into.
We can truly be independent and not feel that we have to follow the Goth Crowd, because It is what is in our minds, our hearts, our lives and our souls that makes us Goth. And we can let it out to play and privately laugh.
I'm just lucky that I have a lovely "playpen" for it.
So if you can My Darklings, take this quote, make it larger, frame it, put it where you can see it every day and know that this is true Gothicness.
