Old Souls

Recently I visited the Old Hadley Cemetery, one of the oldest surviving graveyards in Western Mass.

Passing through its entrance gate is like walking into another century.

Along with the old tombstones can be found ancient trees.

This tomb dates back to 1859.

The oldest tombstones are in such a state of decomposition that new stones have been placed beside them showing what they originally looked like and what was written on them.

Next time you feel like doing a little time traveling stop in to the Old Hadley Cemetery for some enlightening perusing among some of our Valley's oldest graves.

Returning to modernity, yesterday I went to the Holyoke Mall.

I went to the Apple Computer store on the third floor.

Then last night I went to the free John Eddie concert in Stearns Square, which featured women from the audience dancing onstage as captured by this video.

I would never go to a place named in honor of a mobster.
