how did i get here?

my husband, my beautiful Dragon, died suddenly at 12:03 AM on 9 February 2009. there was a cold, lovely full moon and 3 feet of snow on the ground. i "slept" for the following 10 months and "woke" to the physical and emotional pain and torments of deep grief. i "woke" to find i had moved the day of his funeral and that i am lost. i am looking for me while i figure out the abstract, unanswerable questions that follow behind any death. my art has evolved. his death changed that as well because i am forever changed and will forever bear the mark of losing the only man i can ever love.
there is alive and there is dead and there is a place in between. i am here wholly in my heart for my children, but i feel empty inside at this time. i miss him. i have not gotten very far in my grief journey. i make no apologies for this.
this is my place, my blog, where i write to tell the universe that i am still here.

Beach Bunny and her Dragon ~ 2009 ~ Part One

he called her Beach Bunny because she went to the beach every day, walked it, photographed it, collected its small treasures.

she called him her Dragon. he was a fierce man who loved her and protected her from a cruel world that tried time and again to bring them down.
where ever her Dragon went....
his Beach Bunny followed. she loved him and he loved her.
they had dreams. dreams of a home that looked out over...
the abandoned island they loved and dreamily claimed as their own.
their life was hard but their love was strong. they were a twosome like few others. they were soulmates.

Beautiful words and photos. I know this story, but this version gives it new definition and meaning.
