Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

what a beautiful epitaph...her remains were spirited away by the fierce march winds.

I'm so sorry. And what a beautiful picture to post in tribute. I'm about the least-spiritual person you'll meet, but there's something comforting about this set of photos, in which the end is really a beginning.

i turned right, intending to turn left, out of a restaurant parking lot (distracted by the week's events). these groves appeared out of nowhere, and my brother and i both pulled out our cameras.

...a gentle ending to a choppy week.
