It’s been to years give or take a few days. I didn’t forget my promise and I kept taking photographs. We’ve seen so many different places this year.
I try to do better because I know how you would have lived. I don’t always succeed and sometimes I question why I am here. But, I guess all I can do is try.
I’ve been so on edge and irritated lately and I wasn’t sure why until I remembered what day it was (even though I reminded myself a few days ago that I needed to make sure that I wrote this). Then I remembered again that I am here and you are not. Oddly enough, a storm rolled in during my realization. I can see the lightning from my window.
I can’t say good things about the world right now, but dogs are still pretty much the best. Our group of friends are still making their way in this life and I can’t believe its been 10 years since we first met. I am not sure if we would still be friends now (as I regret we drifted before you died), but I know I still love you. I know that you showed me so much about loving people and seeing the world differently.
These are the things we saw this year.
I used my Affinity program to create collages of all these photos – and it came out pretty cool.
