…or should that be a “tober”-view?
Back in wilder times, when I had but one offspring, I put together a month of blog posts to promote Sentinel Hill Press and our projects – the mythical October-ganza! I managed two complete ones and a partial one until other demands on my time – babies apparently need attention and care to remain healthy it would seem, even those formed via Stygian alchemy – made the October-ganza simply too much work.
Now that my various homunculi are a little less demanding of baths in nutrient alkaloid fluids and hourly incantations of the Dho-nha ritual, I thought I might dip my… toe… back into a post-a-day project for the SHP blog. Thus was “born” this years project “Grave-tober”!
For the next 31 days I’ll be posting an item a day, each item being a New England gravestone of particular interest to me. I think each stone is fascinating, either as an artistic creation, as an insight into some facet of history or folklore, or all of the above. I’m forcing myself to keep the posts relatively short – 250 words or less is my goal – to keep my work load reasonable.
See you tomorrow for our first installment. Until then, let us welcome the Halloween season with our traditional invocation : Vincent Price’s reading of “All Saint Eve” from A Hornbook for Witchesby Leah Bodine Drake (published in 1950 by Arkham House).
