Is the time right to enter a gothic period?

Last night I unpacked my gargoyles and dragons. I never realized how many gargoyles and dragons I have, and putting them on the shelves made me feel a tug towards mystery.

The slumbering goth in me claims this would all work better with less heat and sunshine, but even Florida will cool down a bit in a couple of months. It could all come together just fine.

Hubby would probably be okay with the experiment. He's used to me changing from time to time, and I generally change back when inspiration releases its grip.

I sense complications at the daytime job, though. There are a few very, very Christian people here, and I'd rather avoid the discussions. Still, that battle might be worth it to get the mood right. We'll see if the mystical inspiration stays. =)
