Famous Dead Writer

The grave of Henry David Thoreau, in Concord, Massachusetts - near the resting places of the remains of Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

From dust to dust.
Returned to the garden.

Words and ideas may live on, at least for some time longer than our mortal coils.

Guided this day by my dear friend Carol Krauss, who graciously shepherded Ruth and me on the second leg of our vacation.
