It has been many months since I have made a new post. I must admit that I have been contemplating a great loss. A member of my family has passed, and words were not to be found. This image sums it up for me. Originally made as a divorce portrait for a friend, it has become my best selling stock image for book covers. It has also become me. As I contemplate life and death, I can see that each moment is precious and beautiful. I’ve also come to understand that without suffering, there would be no growth. The path may be difficult and humbling, the future is unknown, but it still looks bright to me.
