About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    What else is there to say Susan but Wow! I love your photos and especially the one of Louisa’s grave. My favorite author too when I was 12 or 13. Did we know each other then?

    Great photos–I love the close-up looks at things we use daily so they often become lost to us. You helped us re-look! And Louisa’s grave is a treat–worth a trip one day. Just the other day I heard of a book called Little Women Letters. It is a current title written in a letter format, supposedly by and about the ancestors of the three sisters–and they share traits of their ancestors. It was a review I read somewhere. This group of commentors seem to be LMA fans–have any of you heard of and/or read this yet?

  4. “Ditto” to all the above comments by your admirers — This is a fascinating post and stunning photos of pieces of history I would never see, were it not for your blog! Thanks for sharing.

    Louisa May Alcott was my first favorite author! =)

    Stunning photos! Wow! I did a double-take on Louisa May Alcott’s grave. What a sight.

      She’s buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts, along with many other famous writers. Little Women was one of my favorite books when I was about 12 or 13. It was quite a feeling seeing her gravestone.

    Wonderful entries. I love the stones on Lousia’s grave – I’m surprised there aren’t more, but maybe the caretaker removes them periodically.

      I’ll bet he does or you wouldn’t be able to read her name anymore. I love visiting that old cemetery in Concord. So many famous writers are buried there like Thoreau, Emerson, and Hawthorne, and, of course, our Louisa.

    Very beautiful pics. The lighthouse is perfect for framing and I enjoyed seeing Louisa’s grave. Thanks for sharing all.

  8. I love that photo of the staircase in the lighthouse! Beautiful!

    • comingeast says:

      I need to blow it up and get it framed and put it in my “sea room.” One of my guest rooms is called my “sea room” and has pictures of lighthouses and beaches. I’ve always wanted to live in a lighthouse. Thanks, Julia.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
