The Autumnal season is upon us once more, and this inevitably brings to mind one of my all-time favorite artists: Edward Gorey. It seems like forever and a day since his works have graced my correspondence, or I have graced his works ... or maybe we've just crossed paths: one he graced, the other I scuffed up w/ surly, talentless heels.

Snow, ice, death and bizarre garden parties are the themes which come most to mind and which, oddly, others of my acquaintance seem to associate me with. Gorey and I, kindred spirits, I say ... oh, and toss in a bit of Chas. Addams to top it off!
