Welcome in this oasis of serenity. I love old cemetaries. So that's why i create this blog. Beautiful statues (stone angels), old tombstones and peaceful quietness invite you to reflect on life and death. No, i am not tired of life, i don't wanna die yet, but i love this melancholic feeling i get when wandering about these places. The mystery of life and death. Wander with me.......

Dignity



Life is an unanswered question, but let's still believe in the dignity and importance of the question.

A late response but i was ill (flu), getting better now. :-D Your welcome Yvette and welcome.

Thank you for your sweet comment Karin. I try to make this a place of silent beauty and meditation.

Thank you sweet Renee. Hug!

So do i Shana and this lady has such a strong emotion engraved upon her face: dignified but with a slight amusement as well.....

Hi Momo Luna
These images are hauntingly beautiful and inspire me greatly. I particularly appreciate the way in which you weave the words with the visuals...stunning and powerful.
Thank you!!

There is this wonderful little Gothic Church,
with weathered stone and a red door I visit
every other Sunday. What is so fascinating is
that the church is in the middle of an old
cemetery. I get such a melancholy feeling when
I attend services and at night it just down
right other-wordly.
Great concept for a blog, Luna.
