The Last Post of the 2011 Halloween Season

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I hope you will agree with me when I say that it has been an amazing Halloween season here at the Haunted Gallery.

       In 2011, we've brought you to haunted houses, lonely churchyards, and desolate swamps. We've Trick or Treated in terrifying locales, brewed top-shelf mischief with the witches, and laid waste to the undead. We rode bravely along with Ichabod through the ominous haunting grounds of Sleepy Hollow and lived to tell the tale.

      Alas! A bitter wind is stirring from the north and frost is nipping at the withered grin of the jack o'lantern. Sky and tree alike have been flushed of color, leaving only shadows and grey in the stingy light. Halloween has come and gone, ushering away the season of harvest and making room for the season of darkness.

      A lonely wind howls through the Haunted Gallery. The shutters have been boarded up for the season and the rooms have grown still and dark...  Mysterious sounds echo from somewhere down the hall.

The wagons have been loaded, the horses pawing impatiently at the ground. My compass shivers steadily over "North" and I look in the direction to the darkening hills. My destination is the Winter Post, a place to explore some of the icy blue facets of my creativity...

During the rest of the year, we keep the doors to the Haunted Gallery unlocked. Feel free to stay and enjoy the haunting memories of another great Halloween season for as long as you like... and feel free to leave comments and questions as well  - they will always reach me.

For those of you who have been endowed with the spirit of adventure, (or perhaps just a smidgen of curiosity) I invite you to hop in the wagon and come along with me to the Winter Post. I guarantee we will have a good time.
