I am kind of charmed to note that Appellation Mountain has Ligeia as its name of the day. As you may have gathered, I got the name Ligeia from the Poe poem, or possibly the Vincent Price film. (I spent a lot of my teens watching Vincent Price films, and I really can’t call it […]Read More Name your baby Ligeia!
