I follow plenty of blogs, each one bringing something different to the table. And occasionally during my day one of these blogs pops into mind. One I follow is called Herding Cats, and she has a series of posts called Taphophile Tragics. In other words she finds cemeteries and gravestones interesting and writes about them. I thought she had given up on writing the back stories of these long gone people but it turns out she just started a blog specifically about them, called Beneath Thy Feet. I happen to live near a really old cemetery; I pass it going to the park, taking my daughter to school, letting the dog out, etc., and as I peek over the brick walls my thoughts occasionally trail back to her blog. Now I have no intentions of researching the gravestones or taking her ideas, but I did happen to take a lot of photos there the other day. So here's to you Nicola Carpenter, thanks for maintaining such an interesting blog.
Who knows, your blog may be the next inspiration for one of my posts! Keep an eye out for a follow up post.
