Linden, the heroine in Symphony of Light and Winter, shares an interest with me–graveyards. These havens of dedication, creativity and history have always fascinated me. I recently discovered my brother, Rick, the President of the Mount Pleasant Historical Society also shares a fondness for the representations of a life well-lived or well-loved.
Since it’s a theme that fits so well with my book, not to mention paranormal legends surrounding cemeteries, that I thought I would share our adventures with you.
Since someone either painstakingly planned their final remembrance, or the monument was created as the ultimate act of love by those left behind, I can’t think of a more fitting tribute than share so that other might be touched by their expression.
Since I am a Pittsburgh native, our first trip was to the Homewood Cemetery. We took over 100 pictures but here are six to start with.
If I have enough interest in this portion of the blog, I’ll make Graveyard Tours a regular post and give it’s own section on my website.
My best to everyone!
