Hi -- I'm Clay Reed (and also I'm ...)

Hi -- I'm Clay Reed (and also I'm ...)

Because google allows for searches of names, I hesitate to give my full name because people will search for it and find out I'm (gasp) an astrologer -- which is trouble professionally. I think, however, I can mention my last name: Erickson. You'll find me in old issues of American Astrology (1988-1995) under those names, plus a few times under Jake or Jakob Chanson.

Thanks to those who have discussed my work (if only rarely) on this board. I appreciate the intelligent critique. Thank you Jim Eshelman.

One problem: I hate typing and find it kind of exhausting. So I'm not the best contributor.

I have bipolar disorder. That disease has been in a mysterious remission for more than 20 years -- manifesting for the last time in 1995. Unfortunately, the last time the mania phase struck I alienated almost everybody I knew in the astrology world, and then I just quit publishing and lecturing and communicating. I was fortunate enough to remain friends with Derrick, but I cut off contact with everybody including him (then, later, professional concerns took up my attention and I again lost contact with Derrick).

This post is simply to introduce myself. If I can get over the hatred of typing, I'd like to contribute something relevant -- perhaps in regard to previous posts regarding my work (all of which is now more than 22 years old), or without the narcissicistic self-reference and just in terms of whatever is being discussed.

Please take this post in a generous spirit.

Hey. I remember your articles in AA. Nice to see you here.

This suggestion may not be of any use to you, but you never know...
Google has it's own web-browser called Chrome. Once you're inside Chrome, you can go to Google Docs and use their (free) voice dictation software. I haven't tried it, but I've heard it's one of the few free options that actually works.

Welcome Clay, enjoyed reading your old AA articles and strongly feel your astrological mind would contribute a-lot to this forum. My first Sidereal Astrology teacher, Matthew Quellas (RIP), spoke very highly of your articles in AA. I have quoted some of your work on this forum and am so glad to see you appear on the forum. :D
