Born as the first child of my paternal Grandfather's eldest son an ostensibly Roman Catholic family. At age 7 I was taken under the wing of a man who ostensibly didn't like kids; WE got along swimmingly. Was given by said granddad a ceremonial magic talisman after he's asked if I say my prayers nightly. Was told to place the talisman under my pillow and to add a short incantation to nightly prayers. 3 nights later Mom overheard my Vespers and we didn't go see Grandad for nearly a year! Our family was lower middleclass in a PA steeltown. I inherited Dad's artistic bent. Educated parochially, with a kid's typical fascination regarding historical underpinnings of film 'monsters', understood fear of giant ants, apes & dinos but from where Witches, 'satanic' Sorcerers and Vampires?
