2012, Day 23 - Here lies...

I like the solitude of cemeteries, they seem like the perfect setting for contemplation of the world, of life, of our little woes, anything really.  It's hard to imagine that in Victorian England people used to picnic in cemeteries.  Most parks were reserved for society's upper crust so the more working-class folks used the well maintained and park-like cemeteries for their urban outdoor entertainment venues.  I suppose if I were dead and there is an afterlife it would be nice to have my home in a place of celebration, it would be depressing if it was only a place people came to mourn, I would have to do some serious haunting...
