JB in Martha Stewart Living

I wrote this piece for Martha Stewart’s Living magazine, and it appears in this month’s (October) issue. It’s about the graveyards of new england, and the “art” that appears on the headstones. If you’re having a hard time reading the text, I believe you can double-click the images, which will take you to flickr, where under the “all sizes” tab, you can select “large,” and read’em that way. ¬†Happy Halloween!

    New England cemeteries are great. And they’re everywhere; you can’t hardly take a walk without tripping over dead people.
    In New Haven, there’s a church on the green that was built over the cemetery. They left the gravestones where they stood and built the church around them. You can take a crypt tour and see stones that haven’t been damaged by centuries of acid rain. Fun stuff. I took pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oldangelmidnight/sets/72157594166526633/

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
