only seeing where you used to be

I went to this cemetery in the spring, and made a return visit just before Christmas.

The second visit was much sadder, for many reasons – some of which had to do with the snow and those footprints. It was also closing in on the anniversary of my mother’s death, which tinges everything with sadness at the end of December.

So, here’s a sad song, “Closer to the Light,”, for today’s Bruce Cockburn link.

  2. A lowering sky, tracks new and partially filled in, railings on the left, all lead the eye eventually to that cross between the trees. A poignant image Melinda, doubly so when It is associated with personal memories.
