The idea of WoNderLand came to me one day when browsing fairytale imagery for hours. This became a way to take a break from In-Your-Face-Reality and restore my soul with meaningful mythology. Immersing myself in fairytale imagery was not wishful thinking. I was not dreaming of a Prince in Shining armor coming to my rescue as many people simplistically conclude. They are missing the point entirely. How shallow of them. Feed 'em to the trolls! No, what drew me into fairytales was the promise of transformation, the alchemy of change from timidity to courage. From despair to hope. From disbelief to faith. From victim to hero." ~Visit WoNderLaNd at

Dr. Robert Hare on the psychopath: “He will choose you, disarm you with his words, and control you with his presence. He will delight you with his wit and his plans. He will show you a good time, but you will always get the bill. He will smile and deceive you, and he will scare you with his eyes. And when he is through with you, and he will be through with you, he will desert you and take with him your innocence and your pride. You will be left much sadder but not a lot wiser, and for a long time you will wonder what happened and what you did wrong. And if another of his kind comes knocking at your door, will you open it?"~Visit VampIre at

A Victorian Theater featuring classic films and online discussions about narcissists and psychopaths in the Movies. There's also a list of documentaries and lectures on site, Once in a while, I'll throw on a film noir or something special, like this Charlie Chaplin montage. NOTE: this website was designed for high resolution monitors. The surrounding theater may not be visible on older computers. Sorry! You can still watch the movie (900pixels).  ~Visit the WoN Cinema at

“Tending to others is as natural and biologically based as searching for food or sleeping, and its origins lie deep in our social nature.” ~Shelley Taylor 
As Taylor’s theory suggests, women are not limited to a flight or fight options during crisis. Nor even 'freeze' as some theories suggest. Women take action. They bond with others. We tend-and-befriend. Women forge alliances as an evolutionary tactic. This instinctive urge merits honor and respect for the survival stratagem it was and is. She builds a network around herself, a web of defenders who, from their own experience, recognize the urgency of validation and support.  The desire to join a group is why, in my opinion, message boards are predominated by females who don’t simply ask for 'tending', they offer empathy, support and (((cyberhugs))): befriending.
