“To lie in the soft brown earth,
with the grasses waving above one's head,
and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow.
To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”
- Oscar Wilde

Thankful Thursday: The privilege to ponder
One of the things I most love about being a graveyard rabbit is the opportunity it gives me to think about those interred beneath the stones I photograph. To wander through a cemetery and observe the ways in which people have been interred by their families is fascinating. To consider the placement of the grave, the choice of the stone, and to imagine what their lives might have been like, is a privilege for which I am truly thankful.
