The Gentle Reminder

Rookwood cemetery (formally, a necropolis) is the largest cemetery in the Southern hemisphere- and conveniently located in Lidcombe. It’s overseen by a tangle of faith representatives, and includes victoriana gardens, modern burial grounds and a cremation area. More interesting to me, though, are the older areas of the cemetery slowly being reclaimed by native plants and creatures: a gentle reminder we are lucky to be remembered well in this life, much less the next.
