Angels and mortals drive around in cars

How I feel about it all: calmcalm
Soundtrack: Flash Girls - November Song
Swan Point cemetery is huge. Thus I couldn't find Lovecraft's grave without a map, and I couldn't find anyone around to get one.

The cemetery's gorgeous, though, all lawn and stone, with its family plots with the old RI names on them: Kent, Kenyon, Waterman, Potter, Hazard, Gilbane, all of those...and angels, angels everywhere. (spinning in infinity, as it were) I will post them as soon as I can figure out how. Technologically impaired, that's me.

One of my books and my two CDs came! Not DT7, though, bleh. Good thing I'd actually started reading the thing at Worldcon. *sigh* Lorraine Garland of Flash Girls fame plays the fiddle like a dream. *melts in Celtic bliss* You'd think she was from Dublin and not Minnesota.

Tomorrow I might just go back up to Swan Point, armed with an actual location of H.P's grave. And write, perhaps!

And bleh, I couldn't find 454 Angell Street, either. Where 454 Angell Street should have been lurks a Starbuck's. If they've torn down H.P. Lovecraft's house to put up a cursed symbol of abject capitalism Starbucks, I'll scream.

Also, who linked daily_snitch to my LJ? Because, cool! *G*

Say, I don't know if anybody has already told you this or not (and sorry if they have), but if you go inside the office building, even if everyone's already gone, there's a computerized machine where you can print out maps of how to get to any grave in all of Swan Point.

Also - the Historical Society here gives a truly awesome Lovecraft tour of Providence in the fall. Can't remember when, but I went on it last year and it was totally, totally worth it.

I tried to open the door to the office building. There were people in there, but nobody opened it. Of course, I didn't exactly knock, either. The whole office/chapel area smelled like paint thinner for some reason.

I knew there were tours, but I dont' know anything about them besides the one heinous_bitca told me about that her friend used to do.

That would be me. Now wait until the 200 replies arrive and you might not be so happy. LOL

Which Flash Girls CD do you have? I copied Maurice&I from a friend, and have been wanting more of their music, but am not sure which one to get -- any enlightenment to offer?

Nevermind...I see your tag line is from "November Song."

That song always makes me cry for some reason.
