It’s so curious. One can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer and everything collapses.

    Gorgeous image, Sherri! And I can relate to the quote…. Frank and I frequent a local coffee shop and the barista’s have become friends. On one of Frank’s trips back to England – when we didn’t know when US Customs and Immigration would allow him back again, one of the girls at the shop greeted me with a very sweet, sad smile and asked how I was holding up. I dissolved in her arms and sobbed “I’m just fine until someone asks me how I’m doing….”

    that’s beautiful…. i think what it is is that during the hard times we are afraid we don’t matter and won’t show it… but if someone shows us we matter, it all comes flooding out

    oh boy can I relate to her quote. And what a really lovely photo. So apt with that blood red throat of the hibiscus. It’s lovely.

    Splendid clarity captured in this rose of sharon!! Processing in B&W really makes it “pop”!

    Same with me – stoic in a sad moment until someone pats or hugs me, then I get all teary. Lovely use of selective color in the image.
