Response to last weeks Tour and Grave Rubbings
I feel like last week was another interesting and informative week. I really enjoyed the tree memorial we were able to see and learn about. I learned so much from the symbols on it, even very surprising things such as squirrels symbolizing Satan. I would have never thought that in a million years. It just shows how much there really is to learn and understand about iconography in cemeteries. I also realized that I am the farthest thing from an artist. I was absolutely awful at the grave rubbings. I think I got more chalk on me than on my paper. Oops! Just another learning experience for me I guess. With each passing week I am able to make connections to all the things I see from the prior week so, it is nice to be able to continue gaining knowledge on the subject. I have found that I am much more interested in this subject than I ever thought I would be. I have even been teaching family and friends. They think I am a little weird but, hey I have always been the kind of person who knows random knowledge!
