I've been thinking about loss lately. To be specific, about grief. It comes in many forms; sadness, anger, pain. Sometimes we try to hide it while other times we embrace it. For me, I've lost many loved ones in my life. Cancer, alcoholism, murder and horrific accidents have taken parts in their death. It's caused me to look at my own life differently. Most of the time, I put on a brave face and generally try to be happy. I look at the good things in life and the people I'm surrounded by; the ones I'm lucky to still have in my life. But at night, when the lights go out I still grieve.


  1. cheers to you for not being afraid to let it out! now cheer up!! I gotta say though I really feel you on this, but it's uplifting...is that weird?

  2. That kind of stuff has a way of staying with you - very honest of you to write what you did. Thank god we have art.
    Love, love, love.

  3. I can feel the sadness, the grief from the lady. But for me the flowers represents hope. Beautiful painted flowers btw.
