Since it is SO beautiful out today, I took another walk over to the cemetery. I tried to take better photos this time.
These are a couple of the founders of this town, along with Eliza, one of the wives that I mentioned the other day, who all feature largely in my novel-in-progress Down to the Meadows of Sleep: The Hurley Falls Mystery.
If you’re not familiar with this particular title, all of the dead residents of the cemetery (the founders) are alive & well in the town’s afterlife and they try to help the people who are currently alive & living in the town solve a murder.
I’m on my kitchen porch, blogging on my phone, so here’s hoping the photos post correctly!!
(PS: Cold weather is coming back tomorrow, so I’m going to really try to enjoy this beautiful evening. See ya! I love you guys!)

Oh my, I used to take a shortcut on my way home by walking through our old local Cemetery. I get fascinated reading the short descriptions in their epitaph and wonder how they were when they were still living and say a little prayer for them.
It’s hard not to. So many mysteries in a graveyard!
I know.. every time I walk through in there I feel shivers! and the silence of the place is eerie..I felt transported to their time and wished I knew their story..
i am stoked to meet someone who shared the same thoughts and curiosity in reading epitaphs and imagine the past.. I thought I am being weird and haven’t really talked about it to my friends as they might think I am being weird but hey, thanks! I found you. But I no longer do that anymore since I realised it can be dangerous especially when you walk alone and who knows there are some psycho lurking around the area.. gosh!
I guess it depends on the cemetery!!
Yes, that’s right. 🙂 take care and all the best for your blog and stories. 🙂
The photo of the crypt with your shadow is wonderful. It looks as if you are the grim reaper guarding over it.
Just lucky –me not knowing how to take a picture! 🙂
