So, every year I try to save up the spookiest picture I have for Halloween Day. I'm a Leo, I like a big finish, what can I tell you?
The Columbus Landmarks Foundation has scheduled a tour of the biggest, spookiest, creepiest mausoleum in town - Green Lawn Abbey - and I am delighted (and bought my tickets back in September). I have been trying to get into this building legally for three years. And now it's finally going to happen!
So this would make the perfect grand finale shot, right?
Well, it would, except that the tour is scheduled for November 1. Nothing could keep me from going on the tour, but I have to say that, once Halloween's passed, as far as I'm concerned, it's passed. I am no longer in the mood. I imagine most of you, after a month straight of it, feel the same.
So, here's my dilemma, and my question to you: do I just lamely post a picture or two from the Abbey anyway as the grand finale a day late, or do I suck it up and hold them back for next year?
Leave a comment and let me know, won't you?
Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
