ello, my name is Don Alexander, and here is a little bit about myself:
My wife and I are both Scientologists. I was born in Louisiana, an "honorary Cajun" and the eldest of four: a brother and two sisters. I am a musician and songwriter by profession. I have been performing professionally since 1968 (I'm now 47) and have traveled all over the country and around the world.
In 1988, I began performing on cruise ships. I met Christina, an actress and singer, on the S. S. Norway in 1989 and we married in February 1990 in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. We then worked together as a duo. Our favorite cruise itineraries were Hawaii - Tahiti, and the run from Alaska to Japan, Russia, China, Southeast Asia, and Australia - New Zealand and back, which was a 10-month contract.
For a year now, we have been land-based in Las Vegas, and we like it here. I've been a Scientologist since 1976. At that time, life was so different for me. I was a typical road band musician, I guess, playing, getting high and chasing girls. I know that sounds like fun, and I guess it was a lot of the time, but when it came down to it, I wasn't happy. I knew I wasn't getting anywhere, career-wise, financially, and most important to me, I wasn't making any significant improvements personally. This last point really bothered me. I had questions about myself and life that I had gone into despair about answering. It was dead-end time.
But, I was lucky. Someone gave me an old, beat-up, dog-chewed paperback copy of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and I read it. I read it because one evening, a girl started trying to explain it to me and got me so confused that I figured I'd have to read the book just so I'd know what it really was, so I could discuss it at parties intelligently. That book made sense out of so much I had seen in life and answered so many of my questions that I knew I would no longer have to operate in the dark. Just after finishing it, I used the techniques given in the last section of the book to help a girlfriend get over a chronic infection, and IT NEVER CAME BACK!
I still keep that book as a reminder of what I was like back then (neurotic) and what I might be like if I had never found it (miserable as hell or dead, or both!). I think you owe it to yourself to give it a read, and get some of your questions answered too!
