Upon a hill overlooking the town of Julian, a cemetery that
has been here since 1870 and is still taking burials today.
It is a beautiful place to be quiet and peaceful. You can look
out and see the changing colors of the leaves (and also have the leaves
fall on you).
You can hear the "clop clop" of the horse-drawn carriage
on the street below.
It makes a this California girl wonder if this is what it's
like in New England.
This is a place full of history and more than likely some ghosts
Now the bells from the church ring in the song of joyous exclamation
that echoes through the hills.
The peace is broken by the noise of people and kids. I wish
they would either be quiet or leave. Might be nice if the spirit spooked
them a little.
