Grave situation


Sometimes after my afternoon yoga class I'll stop by Rose Hills Cemetery to feed the ducks, clear my head and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the grounds. I have to drive by Rose Hill each day in order to hop on the freeway towards my studio. They have something for every faith. This is their Buddhist temple / crypt there is always a monk or a nun around to help you. I love sitting on top of the hill to meditate and clear my head. So much of my life seems to have me running around like Alice in Wonderland and I do need to take some time just to stop and take a mental break.

Looks nice!

We have several buddist temples around here, sometimes in the weirdest places. My dad goes once in a while.

Wow! You are so lucky to live so near something so beautiful. I meditate my hiking through the forests and mountains in my area. I love being in nature. It's where I can more readily see myself ... like looking into a mirror.

there's a forest lawn near where i used to live in california, where i always used to go to relax, take pictures, and marvel at the view overlooking los angeles.

it's always nice to have a place like that to just go and chill. when i was a kid in cali, i would do that at the Japanese gardens at the Huntington Library. no gardens or temples in my hood now. i may need to fix that.

How could you not help but stop and do some deep breathing exercises at such a lovely, tranquil spot? Such places are scattered around us for a reason...

Thanks for the signs you sent - I've done a collage of my favourites.

The photograph is wonderful. I too like to go to cemeteries and just sit in the peace and quiet. One of the best cemeteries I have ever been to is the old cemetery in Solna, Sweden. All sorts of famous folks buried there: Alfred Nobel, August Strindberg, Olympic medallists, politicians, and some famous actors and actresses. A great place to sit and meditate.
