"Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance." (Kahlil Gibran)
I love this website, and would especially like to thank all of you who visit the graves of my neighbor, Barry Rideout; my great-grandfather, Luigi Accursi; my cousins, Troy William Cole, Albert Tognarelli, and Bill Wessel; my chess partner, Peyton Russell "Russell" House; my other good friends, Carol Admire and Roberta Page; and the memorials I manage for Chico Mendes and Boris Nemtsov; as well as the other people in my cemeteries for chess players, poets, crossword pioneers, social and environmental activists, veterans, those who left this world too soon, and others dear to my heart!
In addition to the memorials of my loved ones, I especially want to encourage people to visit my VETERANS MEMORIAL and cemetery for SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS. All of the people "interred" in those cemeteries made major sacrifices so that the rest of us could live freely in a healthy environment; far too many of them made the ultimate sacrifice at heartbreakingly young ages. Sadly, few of them get very many flowers. Please show them some love and do what you can to ensure that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
RE: Social and Environmental Activists Glad you liked chess token. I don't leave many flowers but when I do I try to find appropriate ones. I have created a new VC (Tree Huggers). You might want to add Stephen Tyng Mather memorial#11964648 to your S & E A. By the way I have been watching the rebroadcast of Ken Burns's documentary "National Parks" on PBS this week, are you watching it. The scenery is gobsmacking! Lily
RE: Social and Environmental Activists Dear Kate, I posted a flower for John Muir the other day, just after you. Would you leave a flower for Frederick Law Olmstead Sr., Find A Grave memorial# 19078, It's his birthday (Apr.26) and he only has 131 flowers. Thanks, Lily
