rustic remnants…

The Gulick Homestead in The Dalles, Oregon. A Scottish settler married a Wasco Nation woman named Harriet and constructed a homestead on the banks of the Columbia River in the late 1800’s. A very few of the buildings barely stand today.

Taphophilia…

Taphophile: an interest in graves, cemeteries, funerals. Also, a graver, grave hunter, tombstone tourist. 

tapho-photographer and explorer, I suppose. Certainly not the more crass ‘graver’ to be sure. To be one, a label, is far easier than explaining the magic, power, charm and humanizing quality of strolling through a cemetery. Given where I live, Oregon/U.S., the cemeteries are certainly not ancient. They are more of the ‘pioneer’ or settler variety. Yet, the drama of suspected life and the visual certainty of death creates drama’s that touch one as you stroll through a cemetery. I walk away from such encounters feeling more spiritual and more connected to history.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
