Genealogy Expedition

Photo by Daryl Edelstein


I wander among the tombstones
In a long forgotten cemetery,
Brushing aside the moss
And dirt of countless years
In search of familiar names,
Unraveling their stories
From the faded inscriptions,
Hoping to find a clue to my future
Hiding somewhere in my family’s past.

Past is prelude, so they say...

The past can point the way but we can carve another future ~

'Hoping to find a clue to my future' .. I can feel that, I have felt that when I am taking photos in a cemetery .. I feel the past tickling me asking me to think about the future... thank you!!

clue to my future... that is a great angle ... usually we think of a clue to the past. Nice.
