In our lives, we have ups and downs, wins and losses, and even periods of relative stability that we might call smooth sailing. As we get older, we learn to take most of the ups and downs in stride, as we know that, regardless of what is happening, most likely it shall pass.
There are still occurrences that really affect us deeply, though, such as the passing of a loved one. After a period of time, the pain lessens, but the memory will remain. For this week’s loss of Darwin, the pain is still all too real and palpable, so I thought I’d share this image with you…
This image has very special meaning to me, as captured it nearly six years ago during a group night shoot; as I created this photograph, I sensed a change in the space-time fabric, which I could not identify. In the morning, I found out that a beloved aunt of mine had passed during that night, after a long battle with cancer.
This image is for you, aunt Marlies, and also for you, Darwin.
