The Crypt Door
Photograph - Digital Photography
This old wooden door bearing a large hourglass, I'm assuming symbolizing the passing of time, and a crescent moon (not sure what that symbolizes) stand between the living and the dead. This is a door to a crypt, within the Sleepy Hollow cemetery next to the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. It's a fascinating place to visit, and I actually enjoyed an evening there when I witnessed Master storyteller Jonathan Kruk offering a dramatic reading of Washington Irving�s classic tale, �The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,� featuring the Headless Horseman, Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, and Katrina Van Tassel. I don't know who is buried behind this door, but the door is beautiful in and of itself.
