i miss this lil ball of cotton (and yes i stole this from my sister’s snapchat)
hi bb sophie i love you
I went to the Père Lachaise cimetière today! It was absolutely beautiful. It was a gorgeous day. The weather was very much like a beautiful Winnipeg autumn day. Sunny and warm, but a refreshing cool breeze.
The cemetery was very quiet. All you could hear was the birds in the trees. It was so relaxing. I’ve always loved how peaceful cemeteries are. Well not always. Isn’t it funny how as children, cemeteries are spooky, but as adults, they’re so peaceful?
Anyways, I’ll post a bigger set of some of the random photos from today, but here are some of the most famous permanent Parisians.
1. Oscar Wilde
This one was the busiest of all the famous graves. It had a glass fence around it, and a sign saying (roughly) “Please respect the grave. The maintenance is paid for solely by the family.) I wonder what kind of maintenance it has needed?
2,3. Gertrude Stein
There was no one at her grave at all, and the grave is so… Normal. Made me kind of sad.
4. Edith Piaf, and family.
5,6. Jim Morrison
This grave was almost as busy as Oscar Wilde’s, but this one had barricades all the way around it, so you could only get so close. It’s kind of humbling that his grave also looks so normal. He was somebody’s kid, brother, cousin, friend. And now he’s here. It’s pretty cool in fact.
7. Frederic Chopin
Not a lot to say here, just a really beautiful plot.
Some of the famous graves I visited yesterday at the père Lachaise cemetery! Follow my Paris blog (documenting my time here) if you haven’t already.
