Cemetery Walk

When you spend a lot of time on the internet you learn how many people have the same interests as you do.

Ever since I was little I’ve loved cemetery’s. I’m not a fan of visiting family graves because that’s not my bag but I do love the peacefulness of them. There are a few lovely ones near me where the graves are so old they are literally crumbling.

Despite the fact I always imagine what’s going on underground (I just can’t help it) I still love the fact that you’re stepping into history.

Who was that person? What did they do? Where did they go? Why does no one use that name any more?

I have always wanted to do a project where I find the oldest grave I can and try to find out as much as I can about the person. Perhaps I’ll give it a go this summer. Perhaps I’ll figure out what the symbols mean and stumble onto some secret society?

Anyway, it’s just nice to know other people in the world like grave stones as much as I do!

  1. Great post! I really enjoyed reading it too. I love graveyards – so grounding. In fact, we live behind one in London and I find it relaxing to go walking – especially in the summer. I love looking at the names and ages of people and imagine their lives. I am really pleased to now be following your blog.
