This is the end, my only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end

                       - The End, The Doors

Darker Vision started as a tiny project in April 2000,while teaching myself HTML and CSS, to showcase my art and hobbies to anyone bored enough to look. In late 2004 my then partner and I turned it into a poetry and short story site, and as luck would have it, it actually became mildly popular.

At it's peak we had a monthly ezine, regularly updated content, and even a forum that had a small but dedicated group of writers producing some truly amazing writing. Friends were made, writing skills improved, the site expanded to include several blogs as well as photography. But life moves on, and by the late 2000s the site was in decline, and only the forum and one blog continued in any meaningful sense. I guess nostalgia kept me from deleting everything at that point...

Sadly, all good things must come to end, and so must this. Darker Vision will not die, not forever at least. For now, however, it will enter a chrysalis; out of sight, yet not out of mind, destined to return in a form as yet unknown.
