|Stones as a remembrance|
It seems it has been forever since I posted anything here in this blog.
Life. It just sort of takes over.
Organizing. Thinking. Trying to finish projects and have time to reflect or relax.
As I was organizing my photos for an upcoming project I revisited some images I took in September 2012. I don't know why I never really looked closely at this one. I do like the angle and the hint of the view beyond. I suppose you could attach more meaning to that statement...
Stones. Lined up to say, hello? To give honor or respect? Just to say,
"I am thinking of you."
I find this tradition of leaving stones, or even a piece of the earth on a grave to be very important and touching. To me it has more meaning than simply placing flowers.
This is beautiful Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah GA. I know I have posted some photos before.
I have so many I could publish a book.
The cemetery is serene and it is immense in size. With the flowing moss- hung trees and a warm southern breeze, it just makes a wonderful place to sit and just think. Meditate; or sit as in Zen practice.
I definitely could see doing that.
