The Plot Thickens.........

as more dirt blows across the cemetary in Virginia City Nevada...........truly that was the beginning of my recent visit to scout out some former locals. Being Halloween, and also the none too soon Day of the Dead...........it is only fitting that I would spend some time there....paying homage to those souls..,perhaps to one of the souls below,..but I did not count on a windstorm of hurricane proportions. Besides the obvious........you might say the former residents of the City and thereabouts.........were hale and hardy to withstand the winds that whip through the area. Here are some scenes that capture the Halloween/Day of the Dead.......spirits......

Who Spirits!

One of the first early wooden markers.........the name has faded......

It's the beauty of the gate...........time worn

Infant stone..........came in and went out of the world on the same day.........the tragedy of many in those times.......

Growing inside the iron walls with iron will a garden........of sorts.......

Rolling about in the wind.......a forgotten urn?

Entombed with a view...........

Draped pillar in loving memory...............
To the memory of the spirits passed......memorial hangings to be worn around the neck or hung in the home, or elsewhere.....my versions of these....



Halloween spirits and otherwise spirits in memoriam.............
