My mother was born on December 7, 1941- Pearl Harbor day.
She died tragically on October 11, 1990.

Today would have been her 67th birthday. I am feeling blue. The weather outside is very symbolic of my inner feelings; cold and lifeless.

To read more on how she died go to: []

Scroll down to- “Chronicles of an evening.”

From the front door out…

Our frozen pond….

The next two were taken from a window.

Thank you for sharing your feelings with these great photos..I have a heavy heart also when I think of my mom, two sisters and aunt I lost from 1988 - 1992...was awful, but God was by my side and brought me through. He was with me also when I had my bout with cancer, but I am a five year survivor and can relate with compassion to others. That's what He intended. Enjoy the beauty of the snow and be thankful for your ability to capture it's beauty and share with others. :)

sorry to hear your loss - love the last two snowy images - one day I might get back to U.S. -- its so much more enticing with your new President . Really want to get back to New york next year.

Your experience is filled with so much suffering, and you probably continue to ask why. This has to have been so difficult and yet you have focused on the beauty around you through your photography. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
