Two years ago, on this day, my Dad passed away. I took a long walk down to Woodmont beach, wrote his name in the sand, my messages of love and sadness and took photos that day…perhaps to remember the day, I am not sure … and today, I took the same walk, visited the same places, I did not write in the sand…. the colors of autumn….the colors of memory … surrounded me.

I wonder if I will go next year again, will this urge to record memories  and the colors of His day….persist..

Two years ago

Goodbye Dad

Woodmont…with my Dad on my mind…today

 

 

Their Resting Homes, Our Duty to Remember

I posted some of these photos on FB…and nobody made any comment, and I wondered (for a short time ) if cemeteries depress most people, if it is the thought of our own death that lurks back at us from photos alone?…..

I find peace in such places….a moment to remember; stories from the past come alive and I imagine that “they” know I am around, visiting them, talking to them, telling them my own stories.

Then….I go home…they remain at their homes. Perhaps they smile.
