Remembering Margaret Scott
Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
Archie and Neeky do love to add new places to their sniffing GPS! Cemeteries like this give rare, personal glimpses into other ages.
I stopped to talk to Margaret Scott who survived her husband. I explained that my husband had died at 58 and that I wanted to know how her life changed after John’s death at 57! Had she forged a completely different life for herself? Had it been as tough living in this region at this time as I imagined it might be? What did she do while she waited for Godot?
Margaret’s silence suggested that I should talk to the living about such matters.
