The Best of 2010

Reflections on death – part 3

Some ask if I ever hang out with live people, that's how often I can be found in a cemetery.  I'm just drawn to them.  Here's a round-up of some of the best from the last few months - There are lots more in the Graven Images Gallery if you can't get enough.
