Once Upon a Time in a Graveyard Past

65092_10205389386799114_9196551487969920902_nIn response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Forces of Nature.”

I am a runner.  I’m not a great runner.  I’m certainly not a fast runner, but I do run so that makes me a runner. It has taken quite a while for this to resonate in my psyche.  A slow process of evolution has given me the freedom to proclaim myself a runner. Also it is easier to lay aside self judgments of “You’re too fat”, “You’re too slow”, and “You look ridiculous.”  (If any of this sounds familiar I encourage you to read, “No Need for Speed” by John Bingham.)

After a really good run I love a really slow walk just to take in the scenery, the sounds and the smells surrounding me.  It was during one of these walks I found myself meandering around the gravestones of people who had long since passed from this life to the next. I wondered who they were and what kind of lives they had led.  10659439_10205389380918967_7411403253841000841_n

What would these, the dead beneath my feet, say if given a chance. It was quite spiritual and most melancholy.   And so it was with these thoughts roaming my mind, I took the camera captured these moments in time.  I like to call them, Once Upon A Time In A Graveyard Past.

  1. Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!

    1. My best advice is to write everyday even if you don’t know what to write about. So often when I have felt shackled with writers block I’m tempted to not pick up the pen. However, when I through caution to wind and free write without concern, I find my random thoughts eventually form wonderful concepts. Thoughts and feelings I never knew existed within me. Also the daily prompts from https://dailypost.wordpress.com/ helps tremendously.
