Annie at New Life Rising made a suggestion earlier this week and I am taking her up on it -Friday Cemetery Blogging. It was going to be just tombstone blogging, but there are some really cool things in cemeteries that aren't tombstones.
So here is my first entry:
This stone is in the Lakeside Cemetery in Canyon City, Colorado. It is not far from an area that is mostly graves of nuns and priests. The same image is on all four sides of the stone. Here is a closeup of the face:
There is no writing on the stone and an urn is nearby which appears to have broken off the top. I have no idea what the explanation is. My first guess was that each side represented a season and the marker was a statement about the passage of time. However, each of the four faces was the same. The fact that it is in the middle of the nuns' and priests' graves makes it especially provocative. Any ideas, anyone?
