Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday 402 Header : 20 January 2018

This week’s prompt takes us to cemeteries or graveyards. I really don’t visit ancestors graves. I do visit graves in other countries, but never those of relatives as I don’t believe that’s where they are. I have no problem with others visiting them.

So this week I’ll find some photos I’ve found of noted writers’ tombstones.

William Butler Yeats’ epitaph is my favorite. Do you have a favorite epitaph?

  1. Oh,I fully agree with you Susan about them not being there. Infact ,anywhere but…!
    My favourite epitaph? it has to be this: on Spike Milligan’s headstone (Ironically.I once saw him “live” in Oxford in the 60’s!)

  2. During a forest fire a few years back my husband, out fighting the fire, found a large beautiful Blue Willow type urn filled with someone’s ashes which had been left hidden beneath a group of trees on a hillside overlooking a stupendous view. Unfortunately the fire burned away much of the foliage of the trees leaving the urn in full sight. He wasn’t sure what to do with it, so brought it home where it sat on our deck for a year. Every time we went out on the deck we spoke to it – saying such things as “Good Morning, Good Afternoon, How are you today?”, etc. Finally the trees had sprouted new foliage so he took it back and left it where he’d found it – making sure it couldn’t be easily seen. We’ve often wondered who it was we befriended for that year as they sat on our deck?
