Another person gone too soon, vanished before our eyes. Why? Why do things happen out of sequence, out of order, before their time? I was told that it is best to never ask the question why, it is something that can never be answered in this life. Perhaps that’s why I feel compelled to ask even more questions. Why are the answers locked away and hidden? Will we ever know why? Perhaps. It seems that the line that is drawn out to longevity answers such ponderings. The distance of time brings with it a level of clarity.
Time has a way of flushing our wounds, airing our grief and lifting our fallen hearts.
These photographs feel very meaningful to me. At midnight I looked outside and saw a luminescent halo circling the moon. It was glorious. Surely it must be a sign from the heavens, for it illuminated the night sky and allowed my eyes to see into infinity. The hidden, revealed. A rainbow in the night. There is a technical reason for the halo, it is light refracting off ice crystals which creates this phenomenon, also known as an "Icebow”. But it felt like so much more. It felt like answers, a lullaby being sung, a hush to soothe the tears. Most of all it was a reminder that even during our darkest nights there is still light and hope to guide us.
