These are all so sad.
I’ve been watching a fascinating BBC series on the history of Scotland. This got me to thinking. Memorializing the dead in medieval europe.
Memorializing the rich and famous…or infamous as the case may be.
Enjoy the slideshow.
Oakwood Cemetery, Raleigh NC
Sit for a Spell- Three
One grand great life throbs through earth’s giant heart,
And mighty waves of single Being roll
From nerve-less germ to man, for we are part
Of every rock and bird and beast and hill,
One with the things that prey on us, and one with what we kill.
— Oscar Wilde, Panthea
