If, the girl whispers, I do not go into the fire I will not be able to live with my soul. -Adrienne Rich, "Leaflets"
Serious about what?! I was being somber, standing next to our favorite Civil War hero, having tremendous respect for the fallen. Silly. (Really, Dad didn't know how to work the camera properly so he caught me off-guard.)
And a big huzzah for Col. O'Rorke and the boys of Old Monroe! They chased Hood's Texans off the very hill you were on... without firing a shot. Just wait till we take a trip down there some day. Be prepared for a Civil War dissertaion. *straightens bow-tie and puffs intellectually on briar pipe*
*rolls eyes* Here we go.
