I have been sexton here, man and boy, thirty years.

I feel like I can imagine being a gravedigger but I find it harder to imagine having a thirty year gravedigging career. I mean – almost every day – for thirty years, you are surrounded by earth and death and of course a skull is just a normal part of the job after thirty years of running into them.
Thirty years is a long time to do anything. They only thing I have been doing that long is theatre – and that’s my calling…but is gravedigging a calling? If so – what kind of person is called to it?
