I spent a beautiful lightly snowy and foggy (early) morning at a gem of a cemetery over looking a beautiful lake. I must say, I was a bit spooked at times as the gates had just opened and there wasn’t a soul (no pun intended) insight. But I thoroughly enjoyed it and wandered for sometime, losing myself in the peace, quiet and fog.
This cemetery was founded in 1871, This quite interesting story began with several New England-born men and women who came to Minnesota around the late 1800’s. These were the men and women that helped to build the city of Minneapolis. They were progressive, enlightened and envisioned this amazing plot of land as a place for the community members to be buried in beauty and tranquility.
And silence sounds no worse than
cheers / After death has stopped

* SOMETHING TO PONDER *
If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this like is a wandering to find a home’, why should we not look forward to the arrival
