If, the girl whispers, I do not go into the fire I will not be able to live with my soul. -Adrienne Rich, "Leaflets"

When my sister was here visiting at Christmas, one of the things she wanted to do was visit Mt. Hope Cemetery. Ryan and I live just a few blocks away, so one morning, Gretchen and I got up, put on our long-johns, and walked over. It was a spectacular day - sunny, bright, brisk, and absolutely perfect for a short hike. Armed with our digi-cams, we were snapping pictures like crazy.
