In the past few years, Phil and I have done a mini Edgar Allan Poe tour. The first picture is Poe's dorm room at U.V.A., we live only a half hour away. The next picture is the desk he wrote at, perhaps he even wrote "The Raven" there. No wonder he wrote about horror, can you imagine sitting for so long in that tiny backless chair? The last three pictures are in the house in Richmond where Mr. Poe lived, which has been turned into a tiny museum and gift shop. If you look closely, you can even see him peering out the window, I think he's on the lookout for mean critics. This is the oldest house in Richmond., likely built in1737. We even had our picture taken with the king of horror! In the first picture Phil looks pretty scared, but he felt better when I explained it was just a life size cardboard picture.
"Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there. So he did what the Lord had told him...the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening..."
