10 years ago today my mother died unexpectedly and prematurely. She was wise, happy, and selfless. I still miss her deeply.
I sympathized with you, my friend. It will soon be 5 years since my mom passed away, and I can see how I’ll feel the same in 5 more years.
(By the way, very nice picture. Did you take it yourself?)
Yes, I took it. The picture with the swans is from the Grenadier Pond, at High Park. But if you mean the new header picture, that one I took in Prague a few weeks ago.
The one with the swans seems almost like a painting rather than a picture – I love the strokes on the water.
Funny thing that we were both in Prague within just weeks of each other. Were you there for a conference? What hotel did you stay in?
(we stayed at the Olympic, and it was totally crap)
Yeah, that’s a funny coincidence! I went to a conference in Germany, and then to Prague for a few days as a tourist. We stayed at the Charles Bridge Residence, a nice but a bit expensive B&B in a great location.
Just see this post.
Is it a coincidence or you choose this picture on purpose?
Your mom’s favorite animal was the swan. That is the reason why there are swans on the front door and the stained glass window next to it at your parents home. They are there at her request and they remind me of her every day.
I chose it on purpose – swans remind me of her, as well, for these same reasons.
