    I just realized that 8 years ago today, www.shekinya.net went live in N. Royalton OH (Oakbrook Gardens, hence Oakbrook 17-102) for the very first time.

My professional website!


Shekinya.net started back in April 2003 on Yahoo! GeoCities -- for those that remember the Yahoo phenomena. It started as I was learning HTML and, at the time, I was writing fantasy stories. In 2008, Shekinya.net went live with DynDNS and I hosted the website at home. From 2008 to the current, it's been hosted at home with CentOS Apache and Windows IIS.

As Shekinya.net expanded after 2008, I've integrated a business site, blog and photography site into the website. Professionally, I work in IT, so Shekinya.net spurred off "Biz," which includes my "Systems Aboot" home business and local orginization "Oakbrook 17-102," which has its roots in N. Royalton OH. Shekinya.net also incorporates amateur photography work I do in Chicago. Oakbrook 17-102 is an incorporation of all my facets: photography, writing, IT, etc. It started in Oakbrook Gardens, the apartment complex I lived in 2008, located in N. Royalton OH. The name has remained to this day as my personal signage. It has nothing to do with Oak Brook IL, a Chicago suburb.

What's in a Name?

Seácháinha [< Cáterneásh, “Ard Rí” or “High Languange”], masc noun {Shechinah, Glorious, Glory, sim. Hebrew: Shekinah}. 1. The ‘Glory’ is an attribute of Coírhía and associated with the Fifth Elemental Point, the Concordant Summit [Uísara Uír]. 2. The ‘Glory’ is responsible for the creation of all ‘magical’ races of Arden including the Ancients, like the elves and dragons. 3. The ‘Glory’ manifests Himself as a wounded man or the magnificent aura of creation. He planted the Seth-ma-Sima [Tree of many colors] at Ur as a reminder to His wonder.

The Kings of Cátern are indwelled with His Spirit and are attuned to the Heavenly Realms and foresight into the Realm of Arden. King Shafhalóa, the first elfin King of Cátern foresaw much by the power of Shekinya. 4. The second aspect of the Source: Voice [Áugus] and Breath [Síorde] are the other two. Other forms: Sheácainha, Shekìnya, the Essence of Shekìnya.


  • “ At our company's event, Eric captured the entire evening through his lens. Each picture he took, Eric encapsulated color, expressions and time and turned it into art. I got the chance to view his photos of the event and am truthfully impressed! The photos are extremely pleasing and it is surely a night we can all relive just by looking at Eric's pictures. I cannot wait to see what he captures at our next event, all of his photos are posted around our office! Eric takes truly breathtaking photos, you feel like you are inside the picture. ”
