Yesterday I made a trip to the cemetery to visit the grave of my dad. It's been 10 years since he died and I haven't been there a single time. Why bother? As I have posted before, I felt like there was nothing left unsaid between us just before he died. What purpose would it serve to stare at a marker in the ground?
I was scouting out train-watching locations when I noticed that I wasn't far from the cemetery. I decided to stop in. I'm actually glad I did. I found the marker and spent a few minutes meditating. It was a very calm and peaceful moment. I then spent several frustrating minutes trying to locate my grandmother's grave which was supposedly only a short distance away. No luck.
