Graveyards

I’ve always been drawn to graveyards and visit them regularly whether or not I know anyone lying therein. I commune with the spirits there. I wrote about a tribal graveyard previously in my posts Tribal Burial Grounds, so imagine my surprise when while hiking outside of town I came across a different dry, neglected-looking graveyard. I started walking through and much to my surprise, I found this:

Nice rock, if I was into grave robbing, there would definitely be some keepers here.

  1. Sometimes it takes me a while to get to e-mail, but I am always glad when I finally have the time to peruse whatever you have sent. This MUST be a well know cemetery for the area. So many artful, caring, thoughtful markers. I enjoyed it. Thanks!

    1. Good grief, the Internet has been awful today. I replied, but I guess it timed out and never got posted! It is a nice cemetery, and you’re right, a lot of thought and planning went into those graves!

  2. Loved your pet graveyard! Wow! The youth from our church went to SSP at that Indian reservation a few years ago. Kathy Baird said you were by briefly, so sorry things are still bad for your son.

    We will keep praying.

  3. gee…I’m not a dog-lover but I think there’s a tear in my eye – good photography Barb (that must be it…). Did I mention that we got a cat, our first in the Winstead family? A gray/white striped Kitty named Calvin. I have to admit he’s a good cat – fun to watch.
