Why do I find graveyards so comforting...is it because there is no one there to bother me? I feel such an incredible sense of peace when walking through my favorite one. Although this particular graveyard is right in the middle of the city, it feels like it is all alone, not surrounded by houses, people and cars rushing to be somewhere. You can take your time here and listen to the birds and smell the sweet fragrance of the blossoming cherry trees. Time stands still for awhile and problems are non existent. Life slows down and the sense of urgency evaporates into nothing.
