I see dead people

4 Aug

No seriously.

I didn’t know it until a few months ago, but there is a graveyard behind my home.  It had been covered by a thicket of weeds, roots and limbs that hid everything but the trees.  Once they cleared it away, there amongst the leaves were over forty headstones dating from the 1800’s.  As a child, I played amongst the graves because it was the only place to play.  As an adult, rather than find it morbid, I find it comforting.  I’m on the other side of the fence…at least for one more day.
