2 things I love about my neighborhood

There are many, but today I'll limit this to just 2:

Mariposa new best friend. I just had some of their hand-made gluten-free ravioli with pesto tonight. OMG, I've died and gone to heaven. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being where you are at this time in my life.

Mountain View Cemetery: I took a walk there this afternoon. It was fun to see the stones and the mausoleums. I found Ghiradelli's and Crocker's and Merritt's. I also found a few strange I've discovered is that of a local Gypsy king. You can read about it here. I also found one that seemed to say that a Martha Smith served in a Wisconsin regiment in the Civil War. I want to investigate that a bit more. Beautiful views and lot's of grave markers. Spins was in heaven.

To some people it seems odd, but like you I enjoy strolling through old cemeteries, seeing what's written, imagining lives past, enjoying the peaceful setting.

I wish I had a place like that to stroll right now. I am feeling urban-overload. It's hard to clear your head in NYC...
