sacred space by the sea

recently while walking by an old famous cemetery, a presumptuous friend commented she couldn’t believe people actually go to a cemetery to connect to those who have passed.   while it is not necessary to go to a cemetery to connect, the spaces do provide solace.  and people who find solace in a cemetery are not any less because of it.  walking through this cemetery in brewster, massachusetts you can see why people find these places special,  how people find comfort in having a semi-permanent altar space for those who are no longer grounded on this earth.

i love that people leave sand dollars and starfish.

and clam shells.

this girl was only 10 when she died.  i couldn’t help but wonder if she drowned.  morbid, i know.
