Picture of the Day
February 10, 2019

spacer.gif en route from sunbury to philadelphia we detoured to visit the kavage family plot in yorkville, high on a lonely hill. i enjoy
 graveyards but suspect their days are numbered as digital media dematerializes the world. inter-net (get it? verb!) is the
  ultimate mausoleum as we build monuments to ourselves daily, dead as soon as we click send. anyway, epitaphs are good
   for a laugh. the names here seemed spun out of a european centrifuge, many slavs and french. for example, TOUT. ha ha!
         that means all, as in peggy lee's song. JOURNEE--a day. what more poetic summation of a life? and STONE? perhaps
            the moniker will outlast the material as   long as it's etched in some rememberer's heart.
