A moment of thought about what kind of the closeness Abe and Mary shared.
As an everyday man, I sometimes think about how tall Lincoln was, and I see tall people all slouch the same way he did. That makes him feel real to me~ like the man in front of me at the check out in Food Lion. I wonder about what kind of man Lincoln was. His hair is often wild or unkempt. I read a photographer's memory of setting up a pose with Lincoln and just before the shot was taken, Lincoln ran his hands through his hair and purposely took all civility out of his image. Who wouldn't want to meet someone of such sincerity and strong sense of self? Something in his expressions, as stilted as they are, reached out to me across time. By today's standards, and even those of his time, he is not considered attractive, but what exactly makes a person attractive? How? What attracted Mary?
Crows are often seen as spiritual messengers, and carriers of souls and knowledge between this world and the next. They stand with Abe as a personal hope, that despite the horror of violent death, the soul is safe. This man who was murdered is an historical legend. But he was also someone's husband and someone's dad. He was just a man.
