Highland Cemetery

 Highland Cemetery

Thinking back and trying to picture myself as a kid running around this place with friends. Hiding behind the larger grave markers and laughing. Yesterday we drove past, as we often do, so I decided to visit Ty’s grave site then circle around to the back part where we would hang out in the 80’s. This is the older part of the cemetery where nothing has changed for years so it’s easy to picture myself as a kid playing that game where we would try to find the oldest grave marker. I know my kids have heard it over and over but it’s just what I do, thinking back always and telling stories about how it used to be.

Lonely Bench

It was a little cool out today but the sun was bright. I picked a path I don’t usually go on and there was a new bench under this large tree. The tree has branches that are long and seem to defy gravity, pointing out past the trail and almost touch the ground.

Leaves Fall

This time of year is always bittersweet! Typically it brings a measure of sadness because I’m so fond of warmer months but then it also represents changes in life. We learn to accept changes we can’t control and hopefully move on better equipped. This year the change is again bittersweet. The flowers are all dead and it will be a while before I see them bloom again, already I can’t wait for that. With this year comes another change in my life and one that I will accept and use what I’ve learned. There’s something else blooming and it’s love.
