Slowing down…

Once, everything was tidy, orderly, clean. The yard was pleasing. Not just the flowers, trees and lawn, but the structures that are hidden behind the natural, eye-catching elements: the deck, outbuildings, stairs, railings and fences. But then age took hold. Flowers were still planted for splashes of color, of life, for what was.

But gradually, the elements, the cost of making repairs, the lack of focus took hold. Now, the wear, the decline is evident. The clock ticks now as aging takes hold. Momentum seems lost. Even more daunting as the rain, wind and cold arrives. A fog bank of ‘what’s the point’ has pushed in.

Perhaps this is a time, for those of us that observe from the sidelines, to gently suggest changes and help in making those possible for those that are at a standstill and lost in the realities of aging?

Headstone Maintenance

I came across this damaged headstone awhile back. Many of the headstones were 150+ plus years old. Here are a few sites on maintaining headstones: Gravestone Studies & The Camera in the Cemetery.

There is something about cemeteries that is fascinating. Old cemeteries, old explorers and pioneers. I like to explore them and piece together snippets of life and death. I always come away thinking my glimpses are so minimal in piecing together their life and passing. Nonetheless, I enjoy the visits.
