The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Highgate Cemetery
Originally uploaded by The Polstar

Strength or indifference. King of the living. King of the dead. Corona nodding toward classical architecture; living patina nodding toward the breathing, thriving, sun worshiping.

A lion by any other name. Perhaps on a headstone. Or a monument. In Highgate Cemetery. In London. A few years ago. Probably greener now. Features softened by time and photosynthesis. And eyes, lenses, cameras, flashes, monitors, internets, mobile browsing devices. The representations of representations.  Are you still with me?
