Grave Digger Shack

On the edge of an old city graveyard rests a dilapidated shack that was used to store the grave digger's  implements. Every fall the ginkgo tree to the right turns a vibrant shade of yellow that is so beautiful next to the blue of the shack. I made it to this place too late to photograph the loveliness as you can see all the leaves have fallen to the sidewalk in front of the shack. It is sad for me to see the eaves are in need of repair and I hope that will happen. The Gothic arch window dresses up the simpleness of the shack and really endears me to it. I hate to see old places like these being torn down and I hope that is not where this little place is headed.

I heart macro

                 I love macro photography. Here are a few shots I took recently around my yard.

                                                    Nature is so beautiful, isn't it?

                                       There are nettles everywhere,
                              But smooth green grasses are more common still;
                                  The blue of heaven is larger than the cloud

Take it with you

"You can't take it with you when you go"  they say.      

  I think I can.

I will fill my soul to the brim with the love and beauty of this world. With the good memories as well as the bittersweet. I will fill my soul to the brim. It will be heavy with joy when I leave this world and I will take it with me when I go.
