So Close to Home

Yesterday's post was from thousands of miles away -- today's is from 5 blocks from my house. Behold, some of the most beautiful Colonial slate carving I've seen:



It almost looks like Dagobert Peche, with that sinuous curve of the willow trunk:

It's hard to know whether it was the Dearly Departed, the Bereaved or just the local carver who had the taste here, but any way you cut it, it's a handsome way to be remembered. I see a hint of Eric Gill in there, too.

The Jewish people believe that each tomb stone should be the same. I personally believe that everyone before they pass or their family should be able to pick what they want. If they want a fancy tombstone then they should be able to have that.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
