The theme today is Self Portrait After Loss.
Three years after Florence died. These days I'm busy, really really busy. I collapse gratefully into bed each evening exhausted, and I mostly sleep these days too...mostly.
I still have to remind myself of the date, I always want to write 2009 on forms or on cheques. I've said before how I feel there will always be a part of me back there in July 2009 with my baby girl.
I could've taken a self portrait with my living children all around me, and I considered it. That would after all sum up my life today, but I wanted to document somehow those shifting moments in time, one foot here in the present, but one very firmly in the past.
