a trip for halloween candy

Today, bored and a bit lonely, I took a walk to Dollar Tree. I figured I'd buy some cheap candy. This is how I entertain myself. I noticed a cemetery behind the store which I hadn't noticed before, so I took a stroll around in the October heat with my beat up little flip phone camera and took some bad photos. No one was there but me and the ghosts. It was lovely.


what caught my attention, the coppery gleam of the two St. Michaels

Succinct.

Someone recently buried

Those tombstones with the sleeping children, or the baby stones with the sleeping lambs always make me sad.

somber yet fascinating - and apropos for the month's festivities.

Mistress MJ has been to many of the NOLA cemeteries and finds them infinitely fascinating.

Here via MJ. You aren't the only one fascinated with buying grounds. My family used to caretake the Pioneer Cemetary outside Milwaukie, OR. Those old Victorian stones are so poignant.

I find cemetaries to be quite peaceful and soothing. Don't know why, but it is so.

Many of my relatives are in NOLA cemeteries, and sadly, have not visited them. Not even sure if the graves survived Katrina, as so many were washed away.

Cemeteries and dollar stores---two of my favorite things!

I have an unusual last name, so I was really surprised one day in college when friends took me to the local cemetery and showed me a tombstone with my name on it. Quite surprised.

I do love visiting them too.

It's funny if you look at the differences between French and American cemeteries. I actually should take some shots of the Cemetery in town and show the differences.

Strangely I'm watching a PBS show about cemeteries at the same time as I'm reading this post.
