Photos of an absolutely fascinating monument at Harper's Ferry that stopped me in my tracks when I was there a couple weeks ago. I had to read it three times to make sure I really understood what was going on here. A photo of the Shepherd Monument, and a photo of the wayside placed by the National Park Service (text transcribed beneath the photos). Mary Johnson has written a good article documenting the (on-going) controversy of the monument.
Home, home, home. I am so glad to be home. Clean bed, clean bathroom, clean shower...so glad to be home. The best moment of the week was looking toward Gate C29 in Chicago-O'Hare and seeing Catherine walking toward me. Life doesn't get any better.
