Dollopween October 4: Gravestone Symbols

I may earn money from the participating companies linked in this post: (supporting my nearby independent bookstore Bluebird & Co, in Crozet, VA) and/or Audible. My podcast is sponsored by Audible and Care/Of.

Again late with the storm business–this time disruptive wind. Stop it, Joaquim. Not appreciated.


Now with the cool symbolism in graveyards. Yes, I said cool. I am one of those creepy girls who lurks around cemeteries, takes pictures, contributes to findagrave, and wonders about the individuals who are buried in each graveyard. Hey, it’s a creative exercise that fuels my writing, and physical exercise to boot! Yeah, it’s weird, you’re right. But you benefit from it.
