Remembrances of Things Past

 I was travelling on an Amtrak pass in the USA in 1977. I started talking with someone and got off with him as he was travelling to a gathering in Newton, Kansas. I think it had to do with the Rainbow Gathering movement. It was at a big house in the country and it had a Freemason mark on some paving making me wonder if it hadn't been the county poorhouse built by charity. There was a small cemetery with only a few markers near it. I one saw one tombstone that was just marked "Negro Boy'.
