Reintroduce Myself Blogfest & Lunar Lovin' Hop


This is part of the Re-Introduce Myself blogfest hosted by Stephen TrempMark KoopmansEllise Fallson and C.M Brown.



The name is Dragon, Father Dragon. I am also known as Al Diaz. I am a red fire dragon who can shift into human when the occasion calls for it - although usually occasion gets the wrong number. I am a mythical creature who writes about humans.

I live at the Dragon Cave in Mexico City. One hundred and fifty dwarves are my loyal but not always efficient minions. 



I am the owner of the Dwarf Cheering Team formed by: Sessin, son of Tassin; Tassin, father of Sessin; Pancholin, grandson of Manolin and Milin, son of Carmelita.


Mini Me is my dragon mascot, who keeps the circus style mane to remind me of my inner clown.

In short, I am a Mexican dragon who ate a clown, thereof the funny accent. I'm delighted to make your acquaintance or as we say in my town; mucho gusto!


This is part of the Lunar Lovin' Bloghop hosted by Mina Lobo at Some Dark Romantic. We had to take a picture of the moon on the 27th and post it in our blog on the 28th. So I give you the sight of the full moon - la luna llena - from Mexico City.

Moon above the Dragon Cave, full of magic and legend. She's my confident, my friend, and my watcher. It's the guardian of my secrets and the source of both awaken and sleeping dreams.

  1. I've always wanted my very own dwarf cheering squad. How cool would that be. I hope they don't eat much food. Do you give them Dwarf Chow?

    1. Dwarf Chow? hahaha. Raw meet, malt beer, ale, salted pork, and plenty of veggies too. Beans, tortillas, chile, tamales, tacos, sopes, Mexican food. ;)

    1. I am trying, but my collection of red noses is getting too large I don't know what to do with it. Dwarves are starting to wearing them now. ;)

  11. I love this moon blogfest as it's fun to see the shots from all around the world. Just left a blog with moon photos in Australia and now here it is in Mexico City. Very cool!
    I love your mascot LOL.

    1. Yes, I like to see those pics and imagine we were probably looking at it at the same time. Thanks for your comment, Julie.

  12. Clever post.

    Nice pic, but I don't like la luna llena. It usually means a ton of babies being born and crazy stuff happening in the hospital. hahaha Combine it with a storm --especially a tropical storm--and God help us all!

    1. Here I'll confide you a secret, just between you and me, the full moon turns dragon a bit crazy too (more??? Yeah!)

  13. Now, you see, I've learned more about dragons than I ever expected to this week. He keeps company with cheering dwarves and eats clowns. I have the feeling there's more in store for me as I explore this cave.

    1. Lot more, milady. Stay tuned, hahaha. I promise I won't talk about lemons again. ;)

  14. Mucho gusto! Or as the French would say, enchanté.
    I love dragons, but I'm not a big fan of clowns. I read It as a teenager and it may explain a few things... In any event, I'm glad you ate him. :D
    Also like your moon shot, you got a better close up than I did.

    1. O la la! French. I used to talk French but the lack of practice made me forget it. Now all I can say is Frere Jaque, Frere Jaque, dorme vous, dorme vous, sonne (sp?) la matine, ding dong dang. That and the first line of La Marseillaise. Welcome to the Dragon Cave, Elise! Bienvenida.

  15. How tasty are clowns, exactly? Would you recommend them, and I would I prepare one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Contrary to what people believe, not all of them taste funny. There are bitter-sweet, honey sweet (like Patch Adams), plane bitter and sour. There is also the horribilis criminalis type. That would be a slow death meal. I would rather have the honey sweet. They are served with good humor, seasoned with innocence and two full spoons of smiles. They go well with "Sparkle in the Eyes" of any year. Those are always of good vintage. :D

    1. Well, I used to eat humans but I am reformed now. Humans are not food, they are friends. I'm in the Fourth Step now. Talk yes, fry not. :D Welcome to the Dragon Cave, Dani.

  19. What a creative mind you have. I'd still like to be introduced to you!

    One of these days, I may have to try and track you down in the Mexican cave. I wouldn't sell you to science or the circus though, so don't worry. I'll just keep you in a cage for a while to learn more about you, then I'll let you go again.

    1. Hahaha, you made me laugh. Thank you for that. If you come, you may meet the dwarves, if you can put up with them, then you may survive a few days in the Dragon Cave.:D

    Nice to meet such an imaginative and mystical creature. Great illustrations... did you create them? I loved what you said about the moon, and the picture is stunning. One of the best I am seen in the blogfest.

  33. Good to meet you, Al/Father Dragon. I find it very curious that you choose to write about us unfiery folk, but since we've been writing about you and your kind for a few centuries, I guess turnabout is fair play. I'll be reading what you have to say about us with interest--just subscribed to your blog, via email. ;)
