Eventually, it all starts to look the same


As it turned out, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History had an exhibit on this cemetery, so naturally our first stop after the museum was…well, you know.

The cemetery’s split down the middle; the newer side held little interest as it was green and manicured and tidy. It was this side, the older side, that I liked. Right away I saw how the old tree trunk, the concrete curbs, the markers, even the dry ground were all taking on the same color and texture. Dirt to dirt, I guess.

  1. Wendi and I walk around in old cemeteries on occasion. We were visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Kansas once and we stumbled on the grave sites of her friend’s husband’s parents, of all the “small world” things.
