Joy to All!

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Be merry, be safe, and have fun! I am grateful for each of you.

December 2010



Here's a verse for the season:

"A Brumalian Wish"
by "Edward John Ambrose Bierce Theobald," a.k.a. H.P. Lovecraft

From the damnable shadows of madness,
From the corpse-ridden hollow of Weir,
Comes a horrible message of gladness,
And a ghost-guided poem of cheer -
And a gloom-spouting pupil of Poe sends the pleasantest wish of the year!

May the ghouls of the neighboring regions,
And the curséd necrophagous things,
Lay aside their dark habits in legions,
For the bliss that Brumalia brings -
And may Druids innum’rable bless thee, as they dance on the moor’s fairy-rings!

So, Galba, may pleasures attend thee
Thro’ all thy bright glorious days;
May the world and the mighty commend thee,
And the cosmos resound with thy praise -
And may all future ages be brilliant with the light of thine intellect’s rays!


PS. To all of you who have sent such lovely holiday wishes and goodies by mail and email, as well as everyone who has posted holiday greetings, thank you for your thoughtfulness!

Happy Newtonmass!

Here's a Poe-cast for the long evenings, the Tell-Tale Heart and the Cask of Amontillado.

Merry Christmas, Amy!

I'm amazed your dog sat still for that pic. Any hat put on our dogs heads would be off in seconds. :)

Virginia lets us bribe her with treats. If she knows she gets paid in cheese or peanut butter, she'll do just about anything! ;)
