A walk around the cemetery

Musings after an afternoon walk

Way to go America! I hope Biden/Harris will be good for our country, and that we all keep working for a better, more inclusive and equal country for us all. Even with this victory, we still have a long way to go.

The past few days have been beautiful weather-wise, so today I took a walk about Cedar Hill Cemetery. This is a large cemetery that has some important people buried there, mostly important in the history of Hartford/ CT in general.

But the most famous person buried there is actress Katherine Hepburn. People have placed some things on her grave.

One of the reasons I wanted to walk around the cemetery today was to think about our ancestors, and how we carry on the legacies they leave us. As a country, we have a long way to go, to both be in a place people have envisioned for us, and also deal with the mistakes they may have made. Anyway, I’ll stop trying to be deep now and just let you enjoy the nice photos of fall in the cemetery.
