are always difficult
my son would have been
eight years old today
searching relevance in loss
grasping reverence for all life
my son’s memory
my daughter’s childhood
is your biggest
I can feel the pain and loss!
You generously give us this opportunity to pause and reflect, and to offer consolation.
I understand your loss in some way from watching my friend grieve her son. You lost his presence and his future. Life can be very hard, but it is good to be able to appreciate and enjoy your daughters life. Sad for you.
rolling over my spirit
To honor loss, to honor life, Candid reflection. Love the picture of your daughter btw, leaping off the water; taking flight. Quite fitting for how time has flown by so fast and look how much she has grown!
my spawning salmon
my heart goes out to you
in your loss
in your swirling
of a little girl
I can touch
in my heart
That’s such a good way to look at it Geo, we can only go forward, backwards doesn’t lead to much other than more grief. Choosing to celebrate what beautiful things we do have, is right, because time passes so quickly and change never stops. I love your picture of her jumping – wonderful image of celebration! I wish my Dad had taken a picture of me like that, I forget I used to do things like that! ;) And the flower is gorgeous too, beautiful sunlight filtering through! :)
makes me so happy
my radiating flower
Beyond the deepest pain
The purest Hope emerge,
Silently, indubitably, resolutely.

my every day
I did not know of this unimaginable loss in your life Geo. My heart tears for you as you remember and honour through the leap of life of your daughter and the flower, beautiful in its transience. So much relevance, reverence and courage in your words, touching me deeply…
after the long teacher / labour dispute
she finally starts kindergarten next week
I’m so grateful
to have been a huge part
of her early years
Indeed, reverence for all life… and hope. Always hope.
Smiling at this photo and the joy your family now has.
Even better, both.
so beautiful that you turned it into such inspiring words. <3
So sad and so beautiful at the same time
This is heart tugging and beautiful at the same time. I feel your pain and loss, but also your happiness now with your daughter…I love the first photo; priceless…
this too shall pass
