The town cemetery, Stewart, Ohio

An otherworldly visit to the cemetery

The town cemetery, Stewart, Ohio

It's not the only cemetery in town, but it's the only one atop the hill that overlooks everything.

On a pleasant spring afternoon, it's a nice place to be

Charles Byron's grave

He was the local artist and quite a character. The epitaph above his name says, "Even as I, this nation will decay if corruption holds sway."

For some reason, it seems better in infrared

The cemetery is big but the cloud-filled sky is bigger

There's still plenty of room

I find that as the years pass and the inevitable day I take up residence here or someplace like it moves closer, I am more comfortable in cemeteries, especially on beautiful afternoons.
