Today is Edward Gorey's 85th Birthday!!!
On days like today, I stop and reflect on how this one man and his art touches my life on a daily basis: The wonderful books... the coffee cup that I use in the morning... the art on the walls of my home... the phrases and sayings that are part of my daily conversation... the memories of theatrical experiences... this blog which I am constantly mulling over... the collectors and friends I have met and continue to meet with a common interest in his works.
Edward Gorey has permeated every aspect of my life. I only wish that he were still here in person so I could send him a card today to thank him and wish him well....and give him a silly hat to wear...wait, I don't think he would like the silly hat!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDWARD GOREY!
