The first time I was introduced to the poem, Annabel Lee, I remember it like it was yesterday. My aunt had just received her latest "Book of the Month Club" selection and she had chosen The Best Loved Poems of the American People. She began telling me a little about Edgar Allan Poe and then read me his poem, Annabel Lee, from her new book. I remember where I was standing when she read it, I had never heard anything as beautiful. My love affair with Edgar Allan Poe began that day, I was probably about ten years old.

Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia.
|We visited Poe's grave and had our photographs made by the monument. Unfortunately |
the photos are still on a floppy disk :-(
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.

I originally posted this blog in January 2011. It was fun to make the little vignettes
and make believe, at least for a little while.
Thanks to you all for your visit and comments.
