Anna was here!

I adjusted the saturation, etc. in the photo as it was dark when this was taken... this is a little more FUN than the natural color. Doncha think? Anyway....my friend, Anna T., was in town and we were able to go to dinner. She lives in California now and came back for a few days to visit and attend CKU. Here are those headstones I was talking about. I just love headstones...why is that? Most of them are so worn that it's hard to read when you are standing in front of them, much less read in a photograph. These are in the Colonial Cemetery in Savannah, GA. which is now a park. Paper art to return very soon!!!!

Linda,

I am so glad that you had a great trip and enjoyed Savannah. I can't wait to go back. I am heading there in the Fall when it is a bit cooler. Can't wait to see your next creations!

Headstones are timeless, melancholy, beautiful, sculptural, historical, monumental, everlasting tributes to people we can only imagine (unless we knew the person...) I like them too. Some are comical... like a pair of headstones that I've seen display the family name, "Ditto" (get it? One headstone said, "Ditto" and the one next to it said, ... :)

As soon as I saw the first picture of the headstones on the wall, I knew EXACTLY where you were! :) I was LUCKY enough to live in Savannah for 2 years, from 2002-2004. I have a very similar photo of the headstones! I'm not surprised to hear you loved Savannah--we did too! I really do miss so many things about it. Last summer we visited for a day when we were at the beach in SC and it made me 'homesick'. I feel blessed and lucky that I got the privilege to live there for a short time.
