(Amanda) D.C.F. and avocados

Today I took a field trip with the other Education dept. interns to see an offsite presentation, at an elementary school just North of Boston. On the way back we stopped in Concord for lunch and wandered around. We spent some time in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where I was pleased to find "Mourning Victory," a monument designed by Daniel Chester French, and Mr. French's gravestone (simple and sedate). I left a penny there like many before me. Just beyond his grave is "author's ridge" where lie the graves of Hawthorne, Emerson, Thoreau, and Louisa May and Bronson Alcott, alongside the nearly 10,000 others in the cemetery. It was a truly lovely place...with some very steep walkways.
