there will never be a 'new black'

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery


We spent a few hours in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery the other morning. If you aren’t familiar with Sleepy Hollow, read a fucking book. Kidding, kind of. Anyway, it’s worth a visit. It’s less than an hour drive from Manhattan and only 2 1/2 hours from Philly.

At this point I feel I should interject. I am obsessed with the idea of a tree growing on top of my grave and the roots breaking in to my coffin and pushing through my body, thriving off of me.

“From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity.” -Edward Munch

So whenever I see these trees that have encompassed their gravestones, I’m almost envious.
