I love cemeteries, I always have. I find them to be beautiful, peaceful and intriguing. Most likely this stemmed from my mother taking me on picnics in them when I was little. We would go to market, pack our basket with goodies and head then down the street to enjoy them on the neatly kept grass. I would wander around reading the epitaphs admiring the weather worn stones.
My office is directly across the street from Mellinger’s Cemetery in Lancaster. Often I take a mid day stroll through the quiet grounds to refresh my mind. Yesterday I took my camera.
