Jake’s topic this week is Surroundings.

I was think of how our surroundings affect our mood: how some people think surroundings matter even AFTER you are dead and buried. Now, I’m not trying to be morbid…but haven’t you noticed how beautiful most cemeteries are? My grandmother’s cemetery plot is on a hill overlooking what used to be a drive-in movie theater; she used to joke that she was going to spend eternity watching movies!
