Clouds in the gravestone

20170922_145014

The gravestone/memorial has been put in place now, and I was shocked when I first saw it because I hadn’t anticipated the fact that the black granite slab reflects the sky and the clouds (as well as the wording on the stone) like a mirror.

I didn’t like the reflection at first but now sometimes, when you watch the clouds moving in it, it’s like it is drawing the sky and ‘heaven’ down into the grave.  Quite a nice idea, maybe.

(The blue flowers are because we had blue cornflowers in my multi-coloured wedding bouquet.)  (So John will understand why I’ve chosen them.)
