I jumped out of bed bright and early on Saturday (well, as bright and early as I ever will, at 9 am.) I’ve been struggling to reorganize my day since the winter holidays, and up until this weekend I found it so hard. Getting up early reminded me of why I love being up at nine, the special energy in the air, the light, the birds chirping. I missed it.
I’m afraid I’ve got bad news to share in this post. My mother’s biopsy didn’t turn out quite as we expected. One of the nodules in one of her breasts wasn’t good. We don’t know what this means, yet, since she’s had it for many years but only this year it started growing. It’s very probable that the doctors detected it and removed it on time, but we won’t know until further exams are done, including a CT scan and another surgery. My Mom and Dad are really depressed these days, and I’ve no idea what to do other than be here. I’m not sad, though. I have hope and faith that the exam results will show the worst was removed in the first surgery and she’s now doing ok.
Immersing myself in photography is my way of staying in touch with the good things that happen in the world every day. I finally found a chance to shoot a sunset again, after who knows how many months. It was specially beautiful, as if Nature was welcoming me back.
Thanks for being part of this blog that is so special to me. I love coming here. This is the second part of the shooting from this particular day (you can find the first shots on Golden ripples). Hope you like them!
