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.......

A step

A STEP

On the other side of darkness,
far away there shines a light,
A light to end all sorrow,
A light to be ever free,
A light for a new tomorrow
A light for you and me

On the other side of darkness,
far away there shines a light,
A light which gives out joy,
A light which is made of love,
A light which minds employ,
That light in heaven above

On the other side of darkness,
far away there shines a light
A light which bathes mans mind
in the wisdom of eternal flame
That which will redeem mankind
And make the highest truths plain

Raja Sivaji

Beautiful light on beautiful trees

Serene and lovely. I live down the block from
a cemetary and while waiting for the bus I enjoy
reading the names on the stones and imagining
or making up various lives to match the names.

Momo, I have an interview with Michele Battiste
on my blog please come by and give the piece
a read, offering your comments. Thanks.

Für mich gibt es keinen Unterschied.
Diesseits und Jenseits (wenn wir es schon so ausdrücken wollen) ist Licht - samten und weich.

Ich werde Dich gerne öfter besuchen.
