This piece was inspired by a Sunday drive to Julian where my husband and I like to go in the fall when the apple harvest has occurred and they are having their festival with great homemade pies. Corey loves photography and we went to Julian’s graveyard to take some pictures of the town. I was really taken aback at how old some of the tombstones were considering how young California is. This particular one caught my eye and I wondered about this man John and what his life was like in Julian. The tree in the background seemed to be a nature’s grand tribute to the circle of life.
