Lindsay, cheer up! I mean, I like Russ Feingold, too, but don't you think you're overreacting just a little bit?

Where were these taken?

I took this set at the Green-Wood Cemetery, across from Prospect Park. It's an amazing park. I encourage anyone in the vicinity to check it out. It's the most peaceful green space in New York City that I've visited. It's like Central Park, or Prospect Park, but empty and silent!

I went to take pictures of the gravestones as an exercise, but I enjoyed the place so much that I'll go back just to enjoy the scenic beauty and the peace and quiet.

The landscaping is amazing. They've got everything from near-ravines to flat grassy planes and mausoleums on a lake.

Do you know when that park closes on weekdays? I don't want Katie and me to get stuck in.

I have known her lately. Given the choice, I'd stick with depression: then the wrong is in you, but with grief, it's at large in the world. It's the difference between feeling your own hurt that no one else need know and hurting because someone else has hurt.


Green-Wood is a lovely place to visit.

You really need to visit Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont, where many of the artisan/sculptors who made the granite markers are buried, most dead of silicosis , in their thirties, with beautiful markers made by friends who would soon join them at Hope. You will love these fatal sculptures.

Just gorgeous, and well titled. I like that pic a lot.

I like visiting the cemetary on Mount Royal in Montreal. It is part of the larger Olmstead park but it has a serentity of its own. It is also beautifully maintained and it has monuments that go back to the early days of the city. It is possible to forget that you are in the heart of a major metropolis while walking through its woodlands.
