A fragment of my performance ‘Mukalap’ during Border Walk #1 organized by @borderlands.69 at the sacred burial site of Peers Cave. In the performance I respond to a spoken message from a man named Mukalap, who in the Khoe language !ora, calls on a European audience to just for once listen to his beautiful language, and to him. As the last known !ora speaker died in 2011, there is no one left to learn the language from. Speaking in Dutch, English, Afrikaans, as well as fragments of !ora, the dialogue between Mukalap and myself unfolds through a multitude of languages and translations through which the legacies of colonialism resound. As !ora was once spoken throughout large areas of the Northern Cape, Free State, Northwest province and historically even in the vicinity of Cape Town, it is significant to have Mukalap's voice resound in Peers cave, committing his message to the people, the soil and the sea of his homeland. #borderwalk #borderwalks2019 #borderlands #publicartproject #mukalap #performance #performanceart #art #artist #!ora #khoelanguage #khoikhoi #extinctlanguage #dialogue #dutch #afrikaans #english #colonialism #pastinpresent #capetown #peerscave #burialground at Peers Cave

Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. Have you heard this rather confusing Zen quote attributed to Buddha? Couldn’t stop thinking about it after seeing all this wood at the cemetery today! . . Here’s a probable explanation to its origins- A young boy became a monk. He dreamed of enlightenment and of learning great things. When he got to the monastery he was told that each morning he had to chop wood for the monks fires and then carry water up to the monastery for ablutions and the kitchen. He attended prayers and meditation, but the teaching he was given was rather sparse. One day he was told to take some tea to the Abbot in his chambers. He did so and the Abbot saw he looked sad and asked him why. He replied every day all I do is chop wood and carry water. I want to learn. I want to understand things. I want to be great one day, like you. The Abbot gestured to the scrolls on shelves lining the walls. He said, "When I started I was like you. Every day I would chop wood and carry water. Like you I understood that someone had to do these things, but like you I wanted to move forward. Eventually I did. I read all of the scrolls, I met with Kings and and gave council. I became the Abbot. Now, I understand that the key to everything is that everything is,'chopping wood and carrying water.' and that if one does everything mindfully then it is all the same. . . . . #chopped #choppedwood #wood #treebranches #zen #cemetery #philosophymemes #buddha #zenattitude #buddhism #cemeteryphotography #burialground #philosophyquotes #philosophie #thoughful #chennai #madras #chennaidiaries #indiatrip #writerlife #woodcut #firewood #lifehacks #thought_landscape #enlightenment #thoughtfulthursday #purposefullife #zengarden #enlightened #outdoorphotography at Chennai, India

Capuchin catacombs. By 1597 the Capuchin community had outgrown its original cemetary, so excavations began behind the main alter to expand it - using the existance of ancient caves. After two years, the new cemetary was ready to recieve the exhumed bodies of their friar brothers.

After exhumation to move the corpses to their new resting place, 45 of the friars were found to be naturally mummified - their faces still recognizable. The Capuchins believed this was an act of God and decided to display, rather than re-bury the bodies of their brothers - propped in niches along the walls of the first corridor of the new cemetary.

The first corpse to be housed in the newly created catacomb was Friar Silvestro da Gubbio - adorned in a simple brown robe and headdress, clutching a sign commemorating the event (October 16, 1599).

I went to see this small church that sits 20 people in today on my night walk in the woods on this full moon. I could feel the energy in there and I was made up because I got to actually go inside! Story has it that all the names on the board have been buried on the grounds where I was walking many moons ago ☠️ #church #nightwalk #fullmoon #burialground #wicca #wiccan #pagan #paganism #witch #witchesofinstagram #witches #witchsociety #witchythings #witchywoman #witch🔮 #paganwitch #witchery

Stone rings at Hunn. Here you will find a number of graves from the Iron Age, consisting of large stone blocks placed in rings. You will also find some smaller graves and burial mounds scattered over a large area, creating a very special atmosphere. at Hunn Steinringfelt

Inglinge hög. (Östra Torsås 1:1) (post nr. 4) - I had wanted to come here for a long time! Inglinge hög is one of the most famous burial mounds in Scandinavia, the largest in Småland. It is also the location for southern Smålands oldest thing, an old governing assembly. The old folk-land of Värend is one of the places associated with the "Herules" who were first named by Pliny the Elder in the first century as having traveled south into central Europe. According to Procopius they came back to settle in their ancestral homeland next to the Goths in the early 500's. Even the name of the hundred, Konga härad, implicates that this was the place of a king and place names surrounding Inglinge hög include Kongsängen, Kongsladan, Kongsbron, Kongsmaden, Kongsstigen, etc... Scholars speculate that the name is related to the Yngling Dynasty of Uppsala and that this royal line could have originated here. Another theory is that it is the burial for a local petty king named "Inge". The mound is 37m in diameter and 6m high, besides its enormous size it is special because of the famous grave orb and 1.7m tall standing stone at its top. The grave orb is ornately carved with geometric patterns of spirals and flowers, surely made by a real master. A copy of the orb was made and lies in a field near the grave field. - The grave field is located by the lake Torsjön in Ingelstad a few km south of Växjö. There are 130 burials consisting of 1 burial cairn, 5 burial mounds, 3 standing stones and over 100 stone-settings in round, oval, rectangular and ship form. The burial cairn is probably the oldest burial here, from the Bronze Age, in the 1700's a bronze sword was found somewhere in the grave field. Next to Inglinge hög is another large burial mound 28m in diameter and 3.25m high, these two mounds probably date to 500-700 when large mounds like the ones at Gamla Uppsala and other's around the country sprang up. In the 1930's Erik Floderus excavated four of the stone-setting graves and found that they were cremation burials. Three of the graves had grave goods from the Viking age including cloth-buckles (spännbucklor) but the fourth was a bit older probably from the Vendel Period. at Inglinge hög

Mail day after having almost no regular mail of any kind for a week! Also flip over to see this pretty rad NTSC-JP edition of Okami for the Switch. It’s basically the English version that was released in Japan. Albeit the instructions and most text on the case is Japanese. Had me a bit worried despite it being listed as the English version. Not sure if this is the only way to get the game or if there’s a NA physical release. #BurialGround #Gate2 #LabyrinthMovie #Mortician - #FinalBloodbath #Mephistopheles - #MusicIsPoison #Astronoid @astronoid - Self Titled #OkamiGame #NintendoSwitch @goldendawnrecordings #GoldenDawnRecordings

To the chagrin of activists vying for sole control, and a key role in memorializing, what’s believed to be an African-American burial site in Bethesda, Maryland, the Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) continued its efforts to include other parties in the discussion about the plot of land behind Westwood Towers on River Road.

What is it about a snow-covered cemetery? The snow certainly accentuates the peacefulness, the stillness. Maybe in some it activates a subconscious, almost irrational sense of pathos, as if those buried there were exposed to the elements. Or, if you’re horror fiction legend H.P. Lovecraft, you see “the dark headstones clawed up thro’ the virgin snow like the decay’d fingernails of some gigantick corpse,” as he wrote in a letter after a visit to Marblehead’s Old Burial Hill. Either way, there’s something undeniably evocative about the combination of snow and cemeteries. #grave #graveyard #cemetery #burialground #snowycemetery #snow #taphophile #taphophilia #aj_graveyards #graveyard_fanatics #grave_affair #project_necropolis #graveyard_freaks #marblehead #hplovecraft

Modern cemeteries are great and some of the memorial work is breathtaking. But you can never beat an old fashioned Victorian graveyard that is just on the cusp of becoming abandoned and dilapidated. There’s something quite calm and peaceful as well as eerie and spine tingling about them. Reading many of the headstones I can’t but help think about the people laying beneath them and the lives they would have lead. I just find it fascinating. #cemetery #graveyard #burialground #churchyard #headstone #memorial #confessionsofanundertaker #funeraldirector #mortician #morticianlife #funeral #funeralservice #grave #gravestone #death #deathcare #deathpositive #victorian at Swanage

Andrew Tewksbury, born in Winthrop 2/21/1740, died in Deer Island 10/24/1814, son of John Tewksbury and Sarah Bill. Married Susannah Hasey, 2/18/1762. A Documentary History of Chelsea says that “his descendants now (which I believe is 1908) living in Winthrop number 33, and bear the following names: Tewksbury, Floyd, Magee, Wyman, Haggerston, Hall, Gilmore, Brown.” The full inscription should read “Friends nor physicians could not save / My mortal body from the grave / Nor can the grave confine me here / When Christ the son of God appear.” #grave #graveyard #cemetery #burialground #taphophile #taphophilia #reverema #winthropma #deerisland #aj_graveyards #graveyard_fanatics #grave_affair #project_necropolis #graveyard_freaks

Even in death life goes on. Was walking around Swanage today and came across this churchyard on the centre of town. It’s a great initiative to encourage wildlife into churchyards and burial grounds. After all we are all organic matter that when rotted down and fully decomposed our remains nourish the earth. So it makes perfect sense to allow wildlife to flourish here. We can still give back to society even after we are gone. #confessionsofanundertaker #funeral #funeraldirector #funeralservice #burial #cemetery #churchyard #burialground #grave #graves #mortician #morticianlife #undertaker #graveyard #weekendvibes #dorset #swanage #wildlife #death #deathcare #deathpositive #deathpositivity #deathpositivemovement at Swanage

(SAVED!!) -|scroll right for more|-Sycolin African American Burial Ground, Endangered when photographed 3 days prior to The Leesburg Town Council voting unanimously to deed the property to the Loudoun Freedom Center . Sycolin Community Cemetery: Burial Ground of Formerly Enslaved and Free African-Americans with the guidance of Pastor Michelle C. Thomas and in cooperation with the Loudoun Freedom Center. On Friday morning, I had the honor of visiting one of the more important, lesser known, and endangered historic sites in Loudoun County. The Sycolin Community Cemetery may be the largest burial site of free and formerly enslaved African-Americans in the area. As was custom for African-American burial grounds during that time, Pastor Thomas explained; The site is located next to a creek. The belief was that the running water would carry the spirit, and we are lucky to have the water source still present. A similar tributary was lost at the Belmont Plantation Slave Cemetery in Ashburn which she worked to save and preserved successfully as founder and director of the Loudoun Freedom Center. Out of the 65 or so known graves in this larger of two sections, only one is marked with a carved stone - it reads Chester H. Sidwell. Drainage and neglect issues plague the site as can be seen in the photos of grave indentations filled with water, most are only marked with wooden stakes or visible with the help of organized branches. It is likely there are many more graves to the west of the fenced area, as similar indentations can be seen there as well. The First Baptist Church of Sycoline and the burial grounds are the only remaining sites of the Sycolin Community. #heritagephotography #blackhistory #africanamerican #emancipation #history #loudouncounty #fineartphotography #preservation #burialground #lukegreer #virginia #civilwar #blackhistorymonth #blackhistoryfacts #nikon #blackandwhite #church #spiritual #leesburg #leesburgva #loudounfreedom #historymuseum #americanhistory #mosbyheritagearea #bnwphotography #africanamericanheritage #aldie #middleburg #shhs at Loudoun County, Virginia
