I feel cold as Charles Currell on this hilltop tonight, slipping up the slopes of Whitman Cemetery. I've never met anyone here, not in a decade of visiting, because I've got a habit of going when it's windswept. With night falling or in the depth of winter, no sane person goes visiting the dead. So this is when they're most alone, especially Charles, with just eight months to make friends. I can't picture the passage of time, 1846 is too far from reach. But he's lasted this long, planted under an eternal weeping willow, broken branch on a tree of stony memories. Frozen thoughts, add up all you've got, get low below the high ground rising. Nothing moves me like a hilltop full of stones, gathered together spires to the sun. Small skyscrapers, towering when I'm lying in the grass. I can't touch the past, but it's got plenty of pull on me.

The cemeteries are crowded with scattered monuments between the stones, small tokens of memories in the grass. They won't survive as long as the markers, more easily weathered, broken down and beaten by winter. These are lifelike daydreams going on out here, no less alive today than tomorrow. Yesterday is out of reach, never too late to be dog's best friend. I like the silence of a stony stare, get low and wonder what the sculptor behind you was feeling in the moment. Countless thousands from the same mold, I'm sure, and you're just one of them. Individuality of inanimate objects surrendered to nature, time and wear and weather makes the difference. Like everything, the emotion we offer brings the meaning. It's so cold, so cold, warm as my heart makes me.
