Last week - craving green - we went for a walk through a place we hadn't been before.
In the centre of Munich lies a beautiful cemetery: the Alter Sudfriedhof (the Old South Cemetery).
One can walk along the paths which cut through the long, narrow acreage
and admire the many, many ferns
and see fascinating old trees rippling with character
or contribute to the dandelion population
one can be awestruck by the force of nature as mature trees muscle tombstones out of their way
or be touched by the attentions of the living to the dead
some so long dead that wind and rain have removed all traces of writing
reminders of nature and time and the wonderful common road we walk along.
