As if I needed another reason to love cemeteries

2012-03-12 14.46.09

I don't know what to say about the idea that the lichen which grow on gravestones in the Northeast are biologically immortal. 

That's.  Just.  Poetically.  Awesome.

(By the way, anybody recognize the cemetery in the above picture?  I'm channeling Al Brophy.)

Looks like the old burying ground in Harvard Square.

That's Harvard Square! I don't know the name of the cemetery, but it's right next to the Unitarian church, right?

Yes and yes. It is the Old Burying Ground, established around 1635. The Unitarian Universalist Church next door wasn't built until 1760. Gannett House in the background was a fairly significant clue. :)
