“Forests may be gorgeous but there is nothing more alive
then a tree that learns how to grow in a cemetery.”
A cemetery is a sanctuary to me. It gives me calmness and comfort.
I love to walk around reading the stones … enjoying the calmness, bird song and see how the light plays with the greenery.
Also, it gives me beauty.
Even when I was a child … I found comfort in visiting my grandfather’s grave, took my bike and off I went without telling anyone. I walked around and read the headstones … wondering over who the person was and had been .. behind the name.
But I also find sanctuary in my music … here I’m able to combine the two.
Xenia is the guest blogger this week for the challenge – and she has chosen a wonderful theme/topic – a sanctuary.
Xenia … thanks for a beautiful playground.
“The cemetery is full of indispensable people.”
Those of you that know me … also know that I’m not a believer as such … not religious, but I still have I belives and they lais with those that do a difference to the other just now.
Like all the hospital staff all over the world who are fighting to save lives just now.
“Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you’re there
A breath away’s not far
To where you are”
My images are all from Poland: Warsaw, Łódź and Szczecin.
“The only place where you can find equality is in the cemetery. ”
As cloud for this post have I chosen Pastoral suite (Pastoralsvit), for chamber orchestra, Op. 19 (1938) by the Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson (1908 – 1986).
