Adventure in Tomahawk Cemetery (est. 1870)

***

Not much happened on the road… But this was the highlight of my cross-country trip!

To my surprise, right next to our hotel in Kansas was this charming 19th-century cemetery. So I thought I’d jump the very short fence with my shiba inu Nikki (who I had to throw over) and have ourselves a little adventure. :)

The most interesting tidbit about Tomahawk Cemetery is that there is a total of 65 marked unknown graves.

During a street widening project in the early 1990s, the City of Overland Park identified 30 obvious graves that would have to be relocated to another area of the cemetery to accommodate utilities. Some graves were missing headstones and many stones were illegible… Some of the graves identified had headstones that were moved, and for those missing headstones, new granite markers were be placed. While moving the graves, a large number of unmarked graves were uncovered, moved, and also marked. –Johnson County KSGenWeb

This is incredibly out of the blue, but I’m moving back to the East Coast!

Long story short, I’m helping my parents move from San Francisco back to Maryland, so I’m going too. Although it’s a bit bittersweet, I’m happy about this move since D.C. seems a bit more active in film compared to San Francisco. AND I’ll be much closer to NYC, which has a ton of film and filmmakers. Eventually, once I have saved up some money, I’m actually thinking of moving to Brooklyn. But, for the meantime, D.C. it is! :D

With that being said, I’m still 100% committed to filming Death Is No Bad Friend in San Francisco and Northern California. So when we get funded, I’ll just fly back and stay with relatives!!

We will be traveling from Friday, November 1st through Thursday, November 12th, stopping in Kansas City, Missouri for a few days to visit my bubbie. Here’s our schedule…

  1. San Francisco, California
  2. San Jose, California
  3. Laughlin, Nevada
  4. Albuquerque, New Mexico
  5. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
  6. Kansas City, Missouri
  7. Effingham, Illinois
  8. Reynoldsburg, Ohio
  9. Washington, D.C./Gaithersburg, Maryland

I’m guessing I’ll have pretty sporadic internet connection along the way, so I probably won’t have time to post anything here. But I might have a tweet or two. I’ll try to take some photos along the way and share them will all of you!

See you mid-November,

G. E.

“Plastic Journey on Valley”

During the summer of 2009, I bought a new camera and took a class at the Kansas City Art Institute (Missouri) so that I could better document my upcoming travels abroad in Japan (Fall 2009 – Summer 2010). In the process, I created this series of quirky images — a “photographic novel” of sorts. I thought I would share this project here!
