THE EMPTY BASSINET
Born January 29 1883
Died December 19 1884
The intricately-carved white marble gravestone of Mary Wigglesworth, who died just shy of her first birthday, is an empty bassinet, her inscription on the pillow. The symbolism is obvious. The marker is clearly for a child but also represents the emptiness and sadness from the loss.
Mount Auburn Cemetery
Here I talk about abandoned houses, empty houses, abandoned buildings, anything a homeless person can use as shelter. And believe me there are plenty of homeless people taking shelter in abandoned houses. Squatting, per se. But these people have to have someoneplace to get out of the weather and here I talk about that.
