You inspire me to get thinking about my tombstone.
Any one of those would surely help me to rest in peace.

Really beautiful, and especially poignant, given your recent comment on {the kindness of strangers}, which was beautiful, and very moving -- thanks so much for sharing such a lovely story.

OK, weirdo comment of the day. Did you ever see the Dr. Who episode called "Blink"?

Sorry for interrupting with a geek link. Back to admiring the statues...

So beautiful. And thanks for the tag... now I know I should avoid Joan Didion at all costs.

hello gorgeous said...

Thanks, everyone. Aren't they incredible and heartbreaking?

Raina - No, I don't watch it but I looked up your link - that's an interesting, scary premise.

jo - xo

pve - unusual art, but art nonetheless

Thanks Stephanie and Nadia for visiting.

these are beautiful. Cemeteries are so haunting, especially old ones; and nothing breaks the heart quite like seeing childrens' tombstones.
