#Grief #HubsPhoto #New Orleans

The angel of grief.

Angel of Grief

Metaire Cemetery, New Orleans, LA
 
One of the most photographed and talked about statues in Metairie Cementary is inside the mausoleum of Chapman H. Hymans. The interior of the mausoleum, modeled after the mausoleum of Queen Louise of Prussia, is lit by 2 blue stained glass windows that cast a soft light on the statue of a young woman angel with her head down on her arm overcome with sadness.

There is no question that 2020 has been a challenging year on so many levels…well, yeah. You all know this already. 

I was browsing the hub’s Flickr feed for a New Orleans photo and ran across this one. It seemed appropo for 2020. 

I would like to add, that while the photo feels real, I’m also optomistic about 2021. Call me a fool, but I prefer hope to despair (which is different from grief, IMHO). 

I hope that as you head into the holiday season, that you will also feel hope and possibly even some joy. 

Perilously yours,

Pauline
