The spot she chose, and then dreamed of

Mom and her tombstone at the Common Cemetery in Union, Maine. A beautiful spot on Ayer Hill that overlooks Seven Tree Pond.

"If we should weep when clowns put on their show,
If we should stumble when musicians play,
Time will say nothing but I told you so.

There are no fortunes to be told, although,
Because I love you more than I can say,
If I could tell you I would let you know.”

        — W.H. Auden, from “If I Could Tell You"
