She's Gone

She's Gone

I saw this guy quietly praying or crying in Post Alley Friday night, the very portrait of all our inward sorrows. My sweet mommy died yesterday afternoon. Thanks for your many kind thoughts and wishes during her illness.

Gone from daylight into night
A little bit deeper into darkness
Closer to the light

Dear Kim, I couldn't call up your photo for some reason, but no matter. It will undoubtedly appear later. I am so, so sorry about your mother. Please accept my condolences.

Condolences are so very empty, nonetheless I'm sure appreciated. Your photo does tell it all ... Perhaps I glimpsed your mothers spirit above Gasworks last evening, floating in the sunset. Peace to you and your family, Kim.

I lost my mother too a little more than a year ago, I know there is nothing anyone can say to make you feel better... but remember that people can listen and that does help.
I have never posted a comment in your wonderful blog, but I have been a regular visitor for a long time and I wanted to thank you for your art.

Oh Kim, I'm so very sorry. I love the poem you chose - would seem to me that could be just a little help to you. I'm sure we all send you our love and our energy to help you and be with you at this saddest of times.

A beautiful, sad, poignant photo you posted today.

Big kiss and a hug to you, dear Kim.

I lost my mother 12 years ago when I was 35 and I think we still stay a little girl missing her Mom when she is not still there. Take care of you, dear Kim. Sincere thoughts.
