Poet Philosopher and Failure

Yesterday you saw the historic church of St Peter's in Heysham. Today I have moved a few dozen yards to take this photo in the graveyard and just look at that background. I know you can't see much so that is your excuse to go and visit the church. While you are there take a look at this headstone.

If you can't make out the inscription on the left I have enlarged it on the right. What sort of person writes and inscription like this? Firstly they have to be rich as these thing aren't cheap and they weren't cheap in 1909. She may have her own reasons to want to be remembered as a failure but the size of this stone and its place in this beautiful graveyard make her look successful.

Happy snapping
