Today is Bram Stoker’s birthday……….November 8th, 1847. 

I think all of you recognize the name……..how few of us have not read, or at least been captivated in theatre seats, by Dracula.

I visited Highgate Cemetery several years ago….it is said Bram took his lunch breaks here and wrote his  tale of vampires…..Vampires which are still thought to roam this London graveyard.

Mr. Stoker, your words have become immortal; like the creatures you so eloquently describe.

There are those who believe that Dracula was a metaphor for a hidden way of life back in the 1800’s…..where passions of men for other men needed to be kept in the dark,  imprisoned in the crypts of one’s soul. 

There are letters between Bram Stoker and Walt Whitman that add some creedence to this theory……investigate them, they are fascinating.

I have a little dog named Bram…..named after the above author.  I write more of him in my forthcoming book……

Bram is a name heard every day in my house……..Happy Birthday to the one who immortalized it.
