Tombstone Tuesday!

This gravestone caught Niki's eye when we visited Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California, but I never quite understood why.

Lately though, I've been thinking about how an anchor can be viewed in two very different ways. On the one hand, an anchor could be thought of as a dead weight holding something from moving in the direction desired (I think the story of Anchor Baby from Tim Burton's The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories illustrates this mentality perfectly).

From a different and far more positive perspective though, it's important to consider an anchor as the steadying force that keeps a sea-faring traveller from being lost during stormy weather.

Stay Tombed!
