Life is beautiful. Part of this glorious gift of life is learning to grasp and develop wisdom around dealing with the despair of loss. No matter what it is loss is inevitably painful. Growing attached to a friend that we make here on earth whether it’s human, animal or creature occurs whether we like it or not and the hardest of hearts still feels something if only for a few seconds before moving on. But that’s just it…we move on. We leave the sadness behind right before telling everyone how short life is and that we should be kind to everyone because we never know when our number is going to be called and we really feel that powerful moment albeit brief and there’s a beautiful fleeting moment of benevolence before things return to the way they were. Life is monotonously beautiful.
This is dedicated to my beautiful Abigail who left this world on the 9th of January 2015. My friend for five years who taught me that facing my fear is possible. That holding her was one of my biggest conquering and most beautiful experiences of my life. The adrenalin surging through my veins was enough to keep me charged for a lifetime. She gave me a secret passage into the world of arachnids and an understanding that nothing lasts forever. And that it’s going to take me way longer to love crickets. As heartbroken as I am, I will take what you gave me and cherish it always.
Goodbye Abigail. I will love you forever. Thank you for the special spirit you left imprinted in my soul.
How I see it...
I see, speak and write in metaphors because I feel there is much we can learn from nature, people and our surroundings as depicted in my photographs and why I enjoy sharing my thoughts. Not in any attempt to convince or convert you to my way of thinking, seeing or feeling but to share how I see and experience MY mind map of the world. You at no time have to agree, all I ask is that my views and the views of others who wish to express theirs are kindly respected. So relax, get comfy and just enjoy. Happy reading!
