In looking for outlets for my pent up creative side, I enrolled in our Parks and Rec Photography class. This week's assignment is to play with light to compose the most effective photo.

This is my first attempt. I really like the picture, even though the title on this post is a bit morose. It does sadden me that I can't bear to let Sarah's viola go, because keeping it silences it. However, it was no less a part of who she was than her left leg, so by keeping it, I get to keep part of her. I find this picture comforting, in a backhanded unsettling way.

road to nowhere

Through life we all deal with loss, some more gently than others. But I have never met anyone who is not pained by the fact that while life has stopped for them, it seems duly unfair that life has not stopped for everyone else. With that, these lyrics from Jonathan Larson seem most appropriate.

Without You, the ground thaws, the rain falls, the grass grows
Without You, the seeds root, the flowers bloom,
the children play the stars gleam, the poets dream,
the eagles fly
Without You, the earth turns, the sun burns, But I Die Without You
Without You, the breeze warms,
the girl smiles, the cloud moves,
Without You, the tides change
the boys run, the oceans crash
the crowds roar the days soar the babies cry Without You
the moon glows, the river flows
But I Die Without You
The world revives, colors renew
But I know blue, only blue,
lonely blue
within me, blue Without You
Without You
the hand gropes
the ear hears
the pulse beats
Without You
the eyes gaze
the legs walk the lungs breathe the mind churns
the heart yearns the tears dry
Without You Life Goes On
But I'm Gone Cause I Die
Without You
