Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

signs of life

I took these photos and started this post on Saturday, on the Equinox. While searching for these signs, we encountered death. Later that day we discovered that Dave's nephew passed away. I've been debating all week whether I should post especially considering the title. I think Zach would have wanted me to carry on. He was only 23-years-old. I can't fathom the amount of pain a parent goes through after losing a child. It is like the end of the world. It is the end of their world.

I realize now that these photos capture what I want in my life, what I have achieved, what I hope for in the future, what I have now. And these are all good things. AND I hope they all will be with me for a very long time.

We will get old here together!

I think I'm just squinty, not angry!

I really wish they wouldn't do this.

We went into town for pizza, our empty stomachs leading us. On the way we saw tundra swans on the river, about twenty of them.

On the way back from pizza is when we got the phone call. It was a very strange evening out in the woods. We decided to stay instead of heading back to the city which turned out to be the right decision. We carried on. Just like Zach would have wanted.
