I find myself again explaqining our disappearance in 2018. 18 months from my brothers passing we find ourselves again trying to be a comfortfor a loved one facing mortality. My father, at 91 yrs. was diagnosed with leukemia... no telling how long he had it before it was found. This has not been an easy journey for any one inovoled. The ups and owns, the emotions and feelings that range from anger, guilt,hurt,betrayal,profound sorrow,lconfusion, etc. are countered by the caring, love, healing words and actions and simle presence of so many family members and acquaintances. I may go into more detail someday... there is so much to say. For now, Hugh took this image in their backyard in a beautiful patch of flowers that the butterflies visit every day. It has been a great resource for butterfly images, but most of all, it has been a peaceful getaway where we could sit quietly and free our thoughts for a while during each day. It is almost poetic how these little floating spectacles can carry away onces cares... at least for a time.
