Quartzsite, Arizona

Focus on Hi Jolly Cemetery:  Here are two wooden markers. Mike's is recent. Jose's, below, is not. Mike speaks to us from the grave: "I flew through the clouds as a skydiver, and explored the bottom of the sea....I traveled our land in an old Dodge van. But the only thing I never found....was me." From Jose's grave, no voice emanates; all we know is recorded on the small plaque provided by the town (name and year of death, 1883). So, what's the lesson Mr. Loquacious can learn from Mr. Taciturn? [2015]
