Three deaths in recent days. Three of our dearest loved ones, gone forever from this earthly plane. Hard as it is to comprehend, those are the cold hard facts of it. And so it is that I've been absent here of late. I'm burrowing deep into my reserves, looking inward.
I'm coming up for air every now and then, scanning the horizon for the narrowest sliver of sunlight, because I know in my heart of hearts that there are blue skies just ahead.
Joy in the morning.
I've taken that promise to heart for the whole of my life, and I've never once been disappointed. Dreams deferred, perhaps, but never denied.
Blue on blue…I'm peering through the camera lens, trying to see past the heartache.
