Halloween’s almost here and I can’t help but think of the ghoulishness of a good cemetery.  It still light when walking around Bonaventure, but still it was great to explore.  Plenty of interesting creepiness with the huge monuments and Spanish moss.  Boo!

I love cemetery’s.  Is that morbid?  I just find them so interesting.  I find myself wandering around looking at the markers, wondering about the lives of the deceased.  Who are you?  What kind of life did you have in a time I probably didn’t experience.  And cemeteries in the south are so unique and, pardon the expression, alive.  Lafayette no. 1 is nestled in the garden district of New Orleans.  A wonderful neighborhood to wander around in.

So many grave stones.  So many lives.  Are they known?  Remembered?  Visited by loved ones?  Or did they simply give their lives for their country and then we all move on?  Hard to know.  All us visitors go there to take in the ambiance and history.  Maybe do some imagining.  What’s it like to be buried at Arlington?  Heck, what’s it like to be buried at all?  Guess we’ll all find out soon enough.

It was warm out and I wanted to come down out of the hills and see what the Hollywood Forever Cemetery had to offer.  I don’t know anyone there but it did not disappoint.  We wandered around for a short while, being on a timer with relatives.  At the end, I looked up and voila; the Hollywood sign.

Gracie.  From the Bonaventure cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.  The cemetery itself became more well known when it was featured in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.  Being quite close to Savannah, it’s easy to get to and I really enjoyed my time wandering around and looking at the elaborate grave sites.  I don’t know what it is about cemeteries, but I seem to be quite attracted to them.  I often go visit one and walk around to pay my respects in various cities I’m in.  I just find it fascinating to think about the lives that have come and gone.  We have such a relatively short time here.  No one gets out alive.

I wonder who’s sitting on that bench.  It’s in a cemetery, you know.  Ghosts, spirits, hauntings.  Tomorrow is Halloween and I often think about things like that.  I suppose it would be much more spooky if the image was at night.  But, they don’t open up the gates at night and I’m not the type to make the effort to climb large walls.  Do you believe in ghosts?  Ever been haunted?
