Here Lies

Stewart Bain
Electrocuted, November 23 1913
Aged 24

There has never been any explanation as to why I always visit this grave when I pass by this way. Someone has found him after all this time... and there's no explanation as to why that gives me calm.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

Here, we have an expression : "Wood cross, iron cross/ May I lie, May I go to hell".
Interesting text, looking like an X-File episode...
Do you think there's a link between him and you ?

@Basile Pesso: Hmm.... interesting expression.... I've got a feeling this character was waiting in an unhappy place for some time.... hope there is not more linking us than my imagination!

@Stephen: Thanks.... I always felt compelled to be sure the horseshoe wasn't letting all the luck run out!

Electrocuted?
Even his grave looks charred.
Love the zippy processing for this.

@Curly: Thanks... the photo was pretty dull without a little Fotor magic! What a strange thing to be drawn to, eh?

@Mhelene: It did. I have family buried in this cemetery, but I can't force myself to leave without passing by this marker.

In the archives his name is spelled Baine. That's all I've found.
