sketchbook no. 4

i'd like to make rubbings of every grave in the long fir cemetery with a crayon and newsprint or butcher paper. then i could bind all the rubbings into a huge book, a catalogue of all the faces of the gravestones. this project would take forever. and after ten or twenty years, i could do it again as experiment in how much the weather and time have changed the graves. do you think i could get a grant from an historical society to sit around all summer in the graveyard and do this? do you think it would ever get creepy? i have been on the halloween tour of lone fir murders. scary.
