Beach Trip

 My absence from this space  has been due to a very rough time as of late. Two months ago to the day, I lost my dad. Our family is a close-knit one and this has left us all a bit lost, struggling to find our way back to a new normal. I don't normally get personal here, but I felt wrong moving forward without mentioning such a big thing. It has given me such empathy, knowing there are so many people carrying their losses with them.

 Theses photos were taken at the beach on my Dad's birthday. He missed it by just a few weeks.

 I am excited to be back here though, creating new things. I will try to follow this post with some new art, I need the pressure of some sort of deadline. And a new camera (still in the box) needs to be tried out :)

Yes, love to you and your family. I felt exactly the same way, realizing when I walked down the street that I knew nothing of what each person was experiencing. but that I wished all of them well.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is hard to know what to say... there is nothing one can say to ease such pain and grief, just to take each day as it comes. And hold on to the wonderful memories of your Dad. All the best for 2013.x

Hi Kim,
I am so sorry to hear that you lost your dad. I hope that you had a good Christmas and have spent time remembering how wonderful it was to have him in your life.

He will always be in you.

All the best
