February 19, 2011 – Southern Gothic Holiday

Is there such a thing as a Southern Gothic Holiday? It should be today as it is Carson McCullers’ birthday. She was arguably the greatest Southern Gothic author and definitely one who remains somewhat under recognized for her contribution to American Literature.

Keeping in the holiday spirit, it’s a black and white day in San Francisco. We’re a city more known for Noir than Gothic. It’s bleak, rainy and about as cold as it gets here. I am warm at home and working to a Philip Glass soundtrack. The music adds to the drama of the day. Ironically, I am in a good mood, getting ready for a desert trip this week.
