Greetings all. What a fascinating discussion we are having. I joined the
SCA when I was 22. I had met a man and ended up working for him at the
Colorado Renn Fair. During that time I made friends with the local SCA.
Shortly thereafter, I started my second year of medical school in Dallas.
I noticed that all of my friends were medical students and decided that I
needed to get a life, so I looked up the local SCA. The first thing I
went to was a Steppes dance practice, and I was so warmly welcomed by THL
Vashti of the Flaming Tresses that I was hooked. During the next three
years, the friends I made in the SCA kept me sane. When you are caught up
in something so life-consuming as the medical education process in this
country, you need a life-line, and the SCA has been that for me. The man
who introduced me to the SCA has long since disappeared from my life, but
the friends I made will be friends for life. When I moved to California 2
years ago, the members of the local SCA welcomed me here. Once again,
they have been my major source for life outside of medicine. I stay
because I need you guys.
My persona (such as it is) is Elizabethan. Persona development has not
been a major goal for me. I'm too busy learning all of the diverse things
that spark my interest to concentrate on things Elizabethan. Someday my
life will be a little less busy (A girl can dream, can't she?) and I'll
devote a little more effort to persona.
In Service to the Dream
