weekly photo challenge – serene

“The only place where you can find equality is in the cemetery.”
Evan Esar

Since I my granddad died in 1958 …. have I always found a sanctuary at the cemeteries. Often after school, did I take a detour to the cemetery on my way home … just walked around or just sat there on a bench. I never felt sad … I felt embraced and protected. And the tranquillity a blam for the soul, my childhood wasn’t always that great.

A feeling I still have when I visit a cemetery. I find the inner peace within me and the busying world outside the cemetery can’t reach or touch me for the time I’m there.

The images are from the Jewish cemetery in Łódź, Poland and the Ghetto Field, which I visited in October this year.

  2. It’s a good feeling to have, wherever you find it. 🙂 🙂
    A crazy, snow day here today! I was out with my walking friends for our Christmas meal together. Appropriate weather.

    • We haven’t had any snow yet … but when I visit my friend in Kungsbacka last week .. there we had some for 48 hours. Going to have my Christmas meal on Saturday with my friend Iris … we are going to Copenhagen to see “The Nutcracker” and then a meal after! I hope it snows.

      • That will be fabulous! My friend Ann, who has Polish family, is travelling to Cpenhagen (and Malmo- over the bridge) for the Christmas fair next week. She’s going all the way to Dover to do it, but still, I’m jealous. 🙂 🙂

      • Okay, bus to Copenhagen … why not – it will take about a day – we have driven from Kiel at the top of German to Brighton in 12 hours.
