A Lot of Living
Last weekend Will, Holly, Kate and I took a wagon ride to the cemetery by my house. On the way there we found this superball on a storm drain. William loved playing with the ball. We found this giant flat tombstone and were rolling the ball back and forth to each other over it. We had a great time. It reminded me that this world belongs to the living and even moreso to our children.
I love taking my kids to the cemetery and see it as a sort of park. It’s quiet, nobody’s hardly ever there and they can have fun together while I take pictures. We talk about death and what the place means and the memories of all the people burried there. Mostly though they just like to run around and play and be kids.
