My Grandfathers funeral was the first I've ever attended. It was also the first time I'd set foot in a church in about 10 years. I'm becoming sort of enamoured with catholic imagery and couldn't help but imagine bringing the large alter at the front of the church home with me to use as the head of a gilded bed frame. Something about sheer black stockings, gloves, and little white collars, holy cards, shades of gold and royal blue, goblets of wine, sullen looking white people, candles, death. I probably shouldn't be drawing inspiration from my Grandfathers funeral but I feel like that was the most relevant aspect of the experience for me to share on this blog.
