unknown in death…

Will you be known in life? Not in the traditional accomplishments sort of way…but in a cosmic grace sort of way. The gentle, helping hands, the genuine words or just sitting still and listening…in good deeds, with no fanfare. In the end, unknown in death perhaps, but what if they/you were known for their/your cosmic grace in life?

Oregon Pioneers & Johnson Creek

If you have followed SwittersB for a bit, you know I love to stroll through Oregon’s Pioneer cemeteries. There are several in the Portland area that often give a view of the founders of Portland. The other day, I was walking around a cemetery in SE Portland. There I found a grave marker for Jacob and Martha Jane Lee Johnson. The marker described them as Oregon Pioneers and as the namesakes for Johnson Creek that flows across the southern part of the city from Gresham into the Willamette River. It was a fascinating discovery in an unassuming cemetery, in an unremarkable section. If one cares about local history, such cemeteries are interesting. It also makes you consider life, death, remembrance, purpose and your place in life.
