I’ve spent some time everyday for the last week or so walking and sitting in a nearby cemetery.
During Sunday’s big storm, the first big rainfall of the season, I sat in the graveyard apricot orchard just enjoying the new blessing of water.
When I told someone about it, they said, “Well, that’s just sad.”
Yet it has been grounding and nourishing. It really puts things into perspective and helps me to appreciate everything that I have and everyone in my life. It reminds me that no one gets out alive, so rather than grimness, it evokes gratitude.
