Which Cemetery Did You Visit?
Yesterday (October 28) was Visit a Cemetery Day. Sorry I missed it. Which cemetery did you visit? Well, if I'd paid closer attention, I'd have visited a local cemetery I used to walk through on my way to various fine dining establishments in Mooresville, Indiana. Can you guess which one? Cemetery, not fine dining establishment. Let's keep those two ideas completely separate, shall we?
Did you guess yet? Come on, already!
Okay, here's the answer. You'll have to read one of Scowl-Face's blog posts, which is asking an awful lot of my readers, but there's no getting around it. Well, you could just watch this local history video my Library has created. Or just read this handout.
Lots of famous Mooresvillians are buried in the Old Methodist Episcopal (M.E.) Cemetery. Perhaps we should drop by sometime and pay our respects, even if we didn't yesterday (who knew? Just saying). Flowers are nice, but I'm thinking just a few silent moments of reflection would be fine.

P.S. "Cemeteries of London," by Coldplay, appeared on the CD Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008). Some reviewers said this album seemed darker than Coldplay's earlier work, but I'd just say that it's thought-provoking, like much of Coldplay's other songs.
