Yesterday a good friend of ours came over to spend the day and have dinner. We also took advantage of the beautiful weather to visit the garden cemetery around the corner from where we live. It was a wonderful afternoon, one of the highlights of the summer, and topped off by the meal the Hayfoot had ready for us when we arrived home. Later in the evening she was scanning Netflix for something to watch (having finished our Ugly Betty run last week.) when she stumbled up a captivating documentary called, appropriately enough, A Cemetery Special. The PBS website has a snippet. Producer Rick Sebak travelled the country visiting cemeteries from Boston’s Mount Auburn down to Key West and up to Alaska. Cemeteries are ultimately places for the living and Sebak captures why we feel rejuvenated after visiting these resting places. Here is a 2005 interview with the filmmaker from the Washington Post. If you have a chance, check it out.
