Mother’s Boy (August 26, 2006) — Image by Joy

In the summer of 2006, we spent three months trying to get rid of a systemic infection that resulted from hip surgery.
Mother passed away on September 8, 2006, only a couple of weeks after Joy took this picture.
Everyone had convinced me that she was ready to stop fighting —
the pain was too much.

Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything.

— C. S. Lewis

  1. That is a lovely photo Kenne, I miss my Mum too. One thing money can’t buy is more time, yet most people spend most of their time chasing or earning it, instead of enjoying life. It’s a bizarre system we’ve chained ourselves too.

  2. Life is all about time, and we would have nothing without it.


  3. That C.S. Lewis quote reminds me of one by W. S. Merwin:
    Your absence has gone through me
    Like thread through a needle.
    Everything I do is stitched with its color.
