My dad and I began work on our not-for-profit venture in the year 2012 (a year widely prophesized to be the very last of life on Earth). 2012-2013 was our formative year as a nonprofit.
I took photos that helped define what we’re doing. This week’s photo challenge from Jen at WordPress is an essay on awakening. I thought I would show a formative photo from Louth United Church, which disbanded in 2006, when it came into our hands and how it was that first summer we were there.
In the summertime what’s probably our chief task is to keep the grass cut. I try to fill other roles to illustrate to my dad, who’s senior in our operation, that I’m worth keeping in the picture, shoes like SMM and web designer. None of it is too hard for me, but not everybody would want to involved keeping care of a little cemetery. There are numerous of them everywhere.
It is extremely disheartening what’s happened with Facebook and the latest privacy scandal, and even the nonsense on Twitter is likely discouraging. It is as if the only resort is prayer.
I have heard of the Christian adage, “Everything is as it should be.”
I am game to look at some of the posts other bloggers do in response to the WordPress essays on photography. Some of them are devastatingly good! It is an invigorating hobby.
Businesses require blogs, but I am only nominally tying this blog to the practical operations we do at the cemetery. I am mostly held accountable to my dad. I realize we should be both transparent and authentic, and I feel we are, but also genuine in a touch of passion for our venture. It is pleasing for me to share a look at it with the outside world.
