Dollopween October 4: Gravestone Symbols

Again late with the storm business–this time disruptive wind. Stop it, Joaquim. Not appreciated.


Now with the cool symbolism in graveyards. Yes, I said cool. I am one of those creepy girls who lurks around cemeteries, takes pictures, contributes to findagrave, and wonders about the individuals who are buried in each graveyard. Hey, it’s a creative exercise that fuels my writing, and physical exercise to boot! Yeah, it’s weird, you’re right. But you benefit from it.

My own photography to follow, with chosen close-ups of these infographics, perhaps, and recommendations for further reading. Happy Dollopween!
