This is a image I took of my husband and his sister’s boxer looking out the back patio glass doors at the house. It was a emotional shot for me and when I looked at it afterwards. It made me see how his life might be if I were gone and all he had was a lonely house and the dog—no one else that he was used to sharing his life with, or to help him along with his daily living. It was really introspective, and brought tears to my eyes. As you get older, or your health changes, your own mortality becomes more vivid in your thoughts. You know it’s coming-the eventuality of a life span’s end becomes more acutely perceivable and you can’t run away from it. It doesn’t work. So, things become a little clearer—-maybe it’s because we actually DO get some “smarts” as we age on the perception side, anyhow. This is where this image took me—sweet, touching, and a little saddened. As is.
