An Intriguing New Blog

A kindred spirit has reached across cyberspace and taken a stroll through the cemeteries I've shared here in The Clarity of Night.

Going under the name epgraves, his blog Beneath East Point Georgia is dedicated to the exploration and preservation of southern graveyards. If that weren't cool enough, he has begun a new blog whose theme is even closer to my heart. He has taken old family histories and recast them as compelling vignettes and narratives. Those of you who've been with me since the beginning may remember my post Piano Sonata for the Dead. Visit this new site, Southern Shades, and you will uncover a similar doorway to the past.

Time travel is rare. I encourage you to take the opportunity.

(And please be sure to drop a comment if you go. Thanks!)

Jason,

I'm glad you found a kindred soul. Not many people are into graveyards, so you're lucky to have found someone who shares your interest.

Tanya, Jeff and Kelly, I've saved a bit of that kindred spirit feeling for you too.

Epgraves, I wish you much success with your blogs. I will certainly be a regular.
