Serenity in Stone

Angel, Waverley Cemetery

If you live in a city, there are few places where you can be alone. In Sydney, I like to go to Waverley Cemetery, a 41-acre site opened in 1877. Perched on a cliff by the ocean, it occupies some of Sydney’s more desirable real estate. It’s especially quiet now that the section of the coastal path that skirts it has been closed due a landslip. You can sit by the deserted walkway and look out to sea or along the coast, with often not another person in sight. It is as serene as the faces of these stone angels.
