As with just about every other day, I went to work this morning. But the absolutely perfect sunshine,
not seen for at least a week, was strong than my will and I closed up my powerbook for just a
little bit. Since it was Sunday, I felt justified in taking a break and heading out for a walk.
The fresh air and sunshine were therapeutic. I headed east across campus. I spent a lot of time
with my head pointed up, looking at the tops of buildings and the skeleton trees. It was
still bitterly cold, but a few others were out in the air. A group of rollerbladers were out
making stunt videos nearly the Grad Library, but most people were just hurrying along to
their destination. Eventually I ended up at the
cemetery at Observatory and Geddes. I've walked past this cemetery many times, but
this was the first time I had explored it.
It is a very scenic cemetery. It's all hills and many different beautiful monuments. One was
actually a little scary. Down in the back corner of the cemetery large shiny and unmarked slabs
stood high. Looking into the slabs you could actually see your reflection. Most interesting. I
wonder who will be buries here someday.
