A Mood Board.

For a few months this spring, I’ve been back in the corner of the Ozarks where I spent my childhood and years coming of age — and it has rained, and rained, and rained. I’m absolutely not complaining, though, as the earthy landscapes and fully engulfing forests, coupled with the dark grayness of the skies lately, have offered the perfect backdrop for revisiting some of my favorite Southern Gothic literature — and the inspiration for this mood board.

Best paired with a shot of whiskey and some haunting bluegrass music.
