I seek serenity in cemeteries. Around the world I have gone to local cemeteries, listened to the quiet and felt the peace, the sorrow of life and love lost. But in certain places, such as the Calvario cemetery, one can also feel the joy of life lived. The flowers and the brightly painted tombs, the loving words inscribed on the plaques…you can sense the importance of family and of love, here in Xela. For some people, the cemetery is a sad place. Then again, everything is a matter of perspective.
