cemetery perspectives…

If you ever need a place to immerse yourself in history, find yourself a beautiful old cemetery. You might think that sounds macabre, but I just think it’s a lovely way to visit our history and honor those who go ahead of us.

This morning I made a pilgrimage to a lovely little cemetery in Fort Langley, BC with two of my besties–Sarah from Year of Austere, and Kim. We were fortunate enough to run into the very informative and entertaining caretaker, who showed us all his favourite little spots throughout the property and even took us to see some historical photographs in his office.

He told us about his plans to restore some of the beautiful old plot markers and borders, like the one below, which he lovingly referred to as being “hugged” by the tree, which is actually growing around it. Don’t you just love it when people are passionate about their work?!

We saw beautiful details everywhere we looked. Little things that you might not notice if you didn’t take the time to look closely. Little embellishments, like these sweet anchors, must have had great meaning for the friends and family left behind.

I like to think that cemeteries are places for the living too.
