Anyone that knows me REALLY well, knows that I have a fascination with Cemeteries. I know it is morbid, but I don't care. I find them calming and strangely beautiful. The older the better. I love walking through them, ESPECIALLY old ones reading the headstones, tracing the engravings with my fingers, and imagining what kind of person they were in life now that they lie still beneath a blanket of soil and grass. Some headstones are so tiny that you know that the life had not even had a chance to get started yet. Some headstones stay beloved mother/father, son/daughter, etc... Some have pictures, elaborate engravings, personal sayings, or simply say "Lamb of God."
I've been "haunting" grave yards since I was a child reading headstones, running my hands across the tops of the algae covered marble. I've never been frightened, but I could certainly feel the energy of the place. I wonder if that is something unique to me. I've never taken a survey. Thoughts?
