People are doing all sorts of wonderful, unique and creative ways to honor and remember their dead.
It’s a way to tell a story and in telling that story we hope to have that person live on- and they do.
But the story teller does that too.
I was at a cemetery, taking in the atmosphere, snapping pictures, learning stories when I saw this bench and the blue container behind it:
So I took the lid off and looked inside:
I couldn’t tell you what was in there exactly, all of it was fragile and on the verge of falling apart so I didn’t touch any of it.
But their story was in there, I just didn’t have the heart to dig for it.
It wasn’t a wasted story.
The is also a story was about the person who left these things here, they had a story to tell something they wanted to share.
And when I look over these pictures I can see it, and waiting for it to come together has a taste that all writers know.
