Context is everything. It is the Christmas season, and I am currently wrapping up a trilogy about an angel who escorts the newly deceased to the Everlast, so I know exactly what I see when I look at these two photos.
But imagine being graveside on a devastating weekend sporting a thoughtless blue sky. You’re burying your wife, your love, and the mother of your child. A friend points his camera at that deceptive blue sky. This is what he captures.
As this is a season of belief* I do hope that whatever you believe in leaves room for the possible, the potential, and yes, the incredible. Close out 2013 with gratitude, and begin 2014 with hope. Know that someone who loves you is watching over you still.
(Thank you, Tony, for allowing me to post these most intimate, glorious photos.)
** The Season of Belief. There’s a spectacular book title, no?
