Illustration Friday without another trip to the cemetery, now would it?
Even though this might seem to be an unsettling vision or just give you the plain ol' creeps, I do find a sense of peace visiting some of these old grave sites, especially if my ancestors have found their final resting places there. According to a Chinese proverb, "To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root."
The farther out there my life strays, the more securely connected I feel when I look back to honor these lives well lived. May they all rest in peace, though the rest of us still have quite a bit of living to do...Hopefully, quite a bit!
