Highgate Cemetery

"George Eliot doesn't have any birds either, and look, her tomb is sinking.
That's because they buried her with all her books." I said.
"How do you know her tomb is sinking if you can't see?" asks a girl.
"Because I read the books," I said.
You could hear a day laborer spading up wet earth beside a fallen stone.--Stephen Kuusisto
