Sands of Time...

In the graveyard of the Church of the Holy Rude in Sterling, Scotland, there are many graves with the skull and crossbones motif. What caught our eye on this stone were the date (1696) and the hourglass (see it -- right in the middle of the date). I guess time was up for Mr. John Foreman!

Were it not in such a pretty setting, this would rank as a pretty spooky graveyard.

Love your site, thanks for all the comments. Somehow I missed your tag. . . oops. I have been to Europe several times, we have a home in Viimsi (Tallinn) Estonia as well as McHenry County, IL. Someday we will end up there, for now we enjoy life here. So I feel your pain about liquor and laugh about the naked TV! Wish you luck -- will you end up back in Chicago someday? I listed your blog on my site today. Thanks! www.nundadailyphoto.blogspot.com

Le sablier est un beau symbole.
The hourglass is a juicy symbol.
