Rhode Island

What I Never Thought to See

A look through painted eyes

I’m a traveler. I’ve been across the country and around the world. But traveling with Lucinda is a whole new experience.

Usually as a tourist I’m on the lookout for the pretty and amusing, the interesting and inspiring.

I never thought to look for the bizarre and the oddly beautiful, the strange and the spooky until I found Lucinda.

Now I see it everywhere.

It was always there – ignored, waiting to be seen. Kind of like Lucinda really.

Take for example my stroll through West Warwick, Rhode Island last week. I might have focused only on the setting sun or been disgusted by the seemingly endless collection of mini-bottles discarded along the sidewalks.

But with Lucinda, I noticed this old house with it’s overgrown lawn.

And because my eyes were open I also spotted this neglected cemetery with houses all around it:

And that discovery led us down a road we might not have taken. There we found another cemetery that was much bigger and better cared for.

Where, with the markers of the dead all around her, Lucinda posed for one of my favorite pictures:

While you’re out traveling the world, keep your eyes open. And remember, to keep an eye on Lucinda.
