A walk through Père Lachaise Cemetery

From the Metro on a chilly and gray afternoon in Paris we walked to Père Lachaise Cemetery.

There along winding cobblestone paths we discovered an expansive and ancient place.

Acting like children we pretended we were lost in a strange place (a cemetery!). So we crept in and out of the aisles, studied the tombs, and read people’s names and dates of life that had so long ago been carefully chiseled in stone.

My favorite piano composer, Frédéric Chopin. I hummed his Nocturne in E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2, which is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

Welcome to the other side. Here lies Jim Morrison.
