The Tell Tale Heart...

And the mind of Poe.

Neal and I went to see this play tonight in a little community theatre downtown. For some reason I like the weirdness of Edgar Allen Poe. Neal was only familiar with The Raven, but the one that I was most familiar with was the Tell Tale Heart. It had been many, many years since I had read the story, but as soon as the actor started reciting it I remembered. The EYE, the EYE!!!! Ewwww.....

I love Poe! Spooky but somehow hauntingly beautiful.

Hmmm... I have never taken the kids to see a play. I think the older ones are old enough now. I know, I know-- bad mommy! My friends have taken them before, but *I* have not.

I was glad I didn't take the kids to this particular play. It was actually more of a dramatic reading and it was definitely on the strange side...as only Poe can be! They have been to other plays though and thoroughly enjoyed them!
