I Love Cemetaries

    Beautiful Places.

    I find cemeteries beautifully creepy, also very comforting in a way. I always feel welcomed and at ease. I love taking walks through them at night and having picnics in the daytime, looking at all of the different graves and imagining what kind of people they were and just...

    and it's a good place to walk and reflect in. No idea why but I feel significantly more safe in a cemetery than in most other places, when I die I'm most likely going to end up in one anyway so there's no point in disliking them in life
