This afternoon we’ll be participating in our second Oak Mound Cemetery Walk. Eight “actors” (including DH and myself) will portray people who are buried there. DH and a friend — and some others who are portraying family members — have spent a lot of time researching and writing the scripts. It’s a beautiful weekend for this event, and we expect a hundred or so people to attend. Refreshments will follow at the country church that DH grew up in and still belongs to.
It’s not at all creepy to do this. (OK, we’re not doing it at night, which might be creepy!) It’s really interesting to hear the stories and very honoring.
If you have a cemetery walk in your area this autumn, I urge you to go!
