What is the fascination with "haunted" places? I went to the cemetery hoping for a spooky experience, and instead I found myself taken by the beauty and calm. No ghosts, just quiet stillness.

Very interesting post. I'll have to check out the other one you mentioned. This post made me realize that the only time I feel anything significant in a cemetery is when I am visiting an infant or young child's grave. I always feel such overwhelming sadness - maybe my own - or ??? Sometimes, it's like their parents are still there crying. Weird.

When I read 1,000 Steps I thought of that Buddhist belief that I often think about - There are 10,000 steps of sorrow and 10,000 steps of joy - all of which lead to peace.

Also, I noticed and Oklahoma blogger I really like, Oklahoma Farmgirl, follows your blog. And, then, of course, TR. Small world, eh? It sounds like your blog is growing in popularity. It should. I think I owe you an answer to another question about my faith/Nazarene church. I'll check my blog and see. I've been away at a funeral.

Yeah, I often feel the same way when I see the grave of a child. A lump catches in my throat and I feel tears welling up in my eyes. I can only vaguely imagine how it feels to lose a child.

I'm looking forward to your response about your faith.

Thanks for checking in. It made my day.
