It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I love cemeteries. In fact, some of my favorite people in the world are in them right now.
I don't get creeped out that much. It's more a feeling of peace mixed with pondering my own mortality. There is also mystery as to who the people were that have been laid to rest there.

I love Fall. October ushers in a different spirit for me. I tend to fight it at first, but then I give in and let it take me where ever it wants to go.
Usually, I go and check out various sights, such as cemeteries and ghost towns, during this time of year. It fits my mood and keeps me interested in life. Funny how death and decay has a way of bringing to light how lucky you are to be living...and I am lucky to be living, despite all of the loss and hardship in the past five years of my life.
BTW, I wish I could pull off the "Uncle Fester" look once more, but only for a night and not because of cancer. What a great look for Halloween.

It's not bad. I like fall right up until Christmas, when our five months of winter starts.

I totally love cemeteries, and fall, and ghosts and all that gothy type stuff.

When was that pic of you taken? I just watched some of the Adams Family last night. You need to be much whiter and haunch-backed to pull that off.

I don't get freaked out by graveyards either. There were some really beautiful ones in England when I was visiting there.

Julie~ Yeah, winter blows. I mean, it has its moments, but mostly I get cold, wet, and depressed. Wheee!

Christielli~ I always knew you had a little goth in you.

Jules~ That pic was taken in January 2008 sometime. I had just finished my six months of chemotherapy and waiting to start my radiation treatments. My color and weight was coming back, so I was starting to recover. As for the cemeteries in England, yeah, they are cool!
