In my home of New Orleans, we quickly learn to cherish life. We celebrate it constantly in our festivals and events. But we also cherish death. We deem the crossing from the physical to the spiritual as important as life. Our cemeteries reflect that, and perhaps the spirit world infuses how we look at everything around us. If we can learn to see through the eyes of the spirits for even just a moment, how amazing might our world become?
(All cemeteries are located in the New Orleans metro and southern Louisiana area)
