Guess where I’m going?
Oh, geez Wendy. Get a grip. Get a grip on that axe, anyway. You all already know that I’m a huge Horror fan. For no reason whatsoever my bestest pals and I are making a pilgrimage to the Stanley Hotel in Colorado in the next few weeks. Well, the reason is we decided to get together one more time this year post Cancun, and Colorado became our destination. This part of the trip is a truly exciting new addition.
However, many of the most memorable scenes were inspired and still reside at the Stanley. This place was the creative portal for the bestseller and subsequent blockbuster. They have ghost tours and all sorts of kitschy tourist crap that I’m sure I’ll succumb to. I can’t wait. We are booked for a haunted tour and have a private Psychic reading, as well. I can’t tell you how much Ambien and Vodka it’s going to take for me to sleep in this joint. I’m kidding. Sort of. I have a feeling that the majesty and the history of this place will leave me breathless.
Look at this. I’d find it inspiring as well. Can’t wait to post photos and share my experience there. I am re-reading the book and re-watching the film in anticipation.
“Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. You didn’t let me finish my sentence. I said, I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in.”
