A seclude path to heaven

Posted on


secluded path 01

I was so enthralled by this sloppy path next to the tomb wall of Fort Canning Hill.  The fascination came from the tomb walls which were the collection of tombstones salvaged from the old Christian Cemetery.  They were the pioneers from the western country in the 18th Century, one of them is George Coleman.

The secluded path is at the back of this wall

It is situated on both sides of the Fort Canning Centre.  This is the back of the tombstones where it caught my eyes with the lovely afternoon beam.

Standing above the stairway and making guesses.  Trying to inject the image of a holy land into my rocky mind!  This could be the path where the most honorable contributors of the past saunter in and out daily, presenting us with the warmest and innocent smile.

    I followed the lead to George Coleman and the one I found didn’t look like he was a pioneer from the 18th century.

    But he sure can play some lovely and heavenly music. 🙂
    He has a song called Isn’t She Lovely which I really like.

        This is what they call one stone kill two birds! But I don’t like to kill…
        I rephrase it as one bird keep two stones! Haha!
        Good night! 🙂

    I best love to walk the sloppy and rumpled paths. They are more interesting. You never know what you will find. I would love to walk beside this beautiful wall.

      Yes, I have no idea this path lead me to anywhere! I leave this to our imagination…

    Looks dreamy to me. Especially the ivy meandering down the walls.
