I knew I had been researching Colma cemeteries way too long when I typed in "Colma" on Google maps and immediately thought:
"My God, it's shaped like an angel."
Was this not the greatest coincidence in border delineation history since those who love boots or mittens got their first glimpse of Italy or Michigan?
"I'm not [seeing] anything special on my end," said Colma-area native Christian Cagigal when I messaged him the map. And he's a professional magician, so he doesn't lack for imagination. Others were similarly perplexed.
But former Colma resident H.P. Mendoza, a film director who wrote the music and screenplay for "Colma: The Musical," immediately saw it. Except, "I thought it was a demon," he said.
