Kind Words for the Gay Graves Tour

“So much of our time is preparation, so much is routine, and so much retrospect, that the pith of each man’s genius contracts itsel f to a very few hours.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

Joseph Hernandez, author of the travel-related website, “Pith and Moment: Curiouser and Curiouser” had kind words for the time he spent on the Gay Graves Tour on Sunday the 5th of October.

“Night and Day ’ve been tampered with,
Every quality and pith
Surcharged and sultry with a power
That works its will on age and hour.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
