Ever since I was a little girl, I've always been drawn to cemeteries. I remember visiting the graves of my grandparents and reading the headstones of nearby souls. The resting places of people whose lives ended decades, centuries even, before mine ever began. Seeing the burial plots of young children my own age and babies was an indelible experience.
I grew up around the corner from a beautiful old cemetery that steeply overlooks the city of Pittsburgh. Memories of playing "dead" with friends when we were kids, midnight sneak outs in high school, solitude walks. I find so much solace in places like this.

*Although if we're keeping it real, "Lover, You Should've Come Over" by Jeff Buckley is the ultimate cemetery song.
