Not long ago, I timidly stepped into the alternate world of Victorian Steam. My only thought was to become a mechanic; a primocoggler to be exact. However, what I have discovered has been superbly exhilarating beyond my wildest fantasies:
THE PEOPLE OF STEAMPUNK…..
My preconceived idea of Steampunk was focused only on manufacturing the Victorian Steam style of garments, adornments, frippery, armaments, illuminations, creatures, and mobile contraptions.
However, what I have stumbled upon turns out to be more valuable than gold or silver, and that is my new “OLD” friends. It is like I have always had many trusted friends, I just hadn’t met them yet.
In astonishment, what I have learned is that I have comrades in many countries; all of whom are proper, respectful, talented, curious, and most of all, sharing warmhearted worldly folks.
I will press hard to earn the respect I have been granted and take my proper place in this alternate society. With that said, many thanks to all of you who have, without question, accepted my hand in friendship.
