After 24 years, we are back to a duo. No matter what you are told, believe me, it’s harder than you think.
Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again. I’m looking forward to my third go at participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break by posting prompts here on the blog and on my Instagram account. There are no rules, really. Simply take a photo every day for the month of August, based on the prompts or not. I take a photo a day all year long, but you can’t lose no matter how many days you keep this up. And the more, the merrier!

I agree; two can be tough. Three can be a buffer, and I often long for the return of four. Sometimes the quiet contemplation of one is necessary for me to once again be a part of two.
And there are times when I act like there’s still a kid living at home. It’s funny how those roles are hard to shake. Plus I still spend plenty of time worrying even though she’s off on her own. That never seems to change.
What a poignant, eloquent, evocative image! Sand, water, shadows? The transient and yet permanent, so deeply felt. It is indeed hard.
Even after five months, I haven’t quite adjusted yet.
My son moved out at age 19. He died nine Months later in a tragic car accident. Being a single empty nester is difficult enough,but we keep moving forward to the beauty of each new day don’t we. Sometimes I still think I heard my son calling me and turn to see where he is. i too have had a difficult transition in my life. God bless both of you and I do love the photo taken.
Thank you so much for your comment, Julie. This is a hard adjustment for us, but I can’t imagine your loss. I’m so sorry you had to go through this. I’m glad you liked the photo.
