11 September 2020 : waiting

Waiting on the domain for this new site to become active. Dot com. Imported all the posts and images from my old site. Here, there will be a lot less work for me. Less upkeep for the site. I’ll just be shooting photos and posting and maybe small, easy changes to the design when i want. Life is short. Too short to be wasting…

Mother was fading in Miami.

2016 February, Miami Beach, Florida

This small comfort, pleasure, the ocean caressing my feet, toes curled into the sand, about 18 months after my father passed. Mourning. Respect. It took a long time. I don’t know what getting back to ‘normal’ means anymore.

A few days into this visit it became clear. Mother could no longer live on her own. The dementia was bad. She hardly knew where she was. 11 April 2016 my sister and I moved her into assisted living. It was a stressful time. But we did what we thought best for her.

Contemplation – Life and Death on Miami Beach

Bill passed 3 October 2018. Too young, too full of life. Some things just aren’t right. This is one of them. He was a good man. Family, friends, we will all miss him. This photo was taken 19 April 2008.

It’s been a while. 4 months. Eventful months. Difficult months. Uncle died. Mother died. Resurfacing. Seeing what I can do off of robot mode. Hard to get back into the swing of the day to day. Hard to stay focused on work, projects, ideas. Harder now to care and easier at the same time. Loss has this effect on me. I know what I…
