Shadow of Capitulation

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue February. 09, 2018 2229 views

Shadow is much more as a dark area where light is blocked. Sometimes are shadows ghost and hidden in there is a aspect of self-esteem.

When my father was suddenly hit by a stroke in 2014, everything was tumbling down on all our heads. He was in an stroke unit in a hospital for four weeks and the prospects were lower than low. My mother was with him all day long and spent the nights in a rented room nearby the hospital. Meanwhile – although we didn't know if he would survive at all – I started to adjust the house of my parents to standards of accessible housing. When the bath was transformed into a room with all the handicapped amenities and accessibilities for usage with a wheelchair, I took a lot of pictures. I wanted to give my father some hope and happiness. Of course I also wanted to inform my mother about the progress.

When I saw this picture the shadow of the seat and the upturned armrests, it reminded me of a surrendering person. It still does.

By the way my parents love it!

No doubt your parents are extremely proud of who you are and glad that you are their daughter. You have an incredible imagination, I had to look several times before I could see what you saw :)

I'm proud of my parents too, they are fighting so hard. Imagination, it isn't always funny to have a too much of it! I didn't show this picture to my parents ...

That's the picture, that they never saw and my imagination is sometimes a nightmare.

I'm the "victim" of an overactive imagination, as well.......It's a "double edged sword": the ability to imagine wonderful scenarios, but also, just as likely to conjure up horrific ones, as well......no???

I'm great at both possibilities, but when it comes to family and friends I'm the damned Queen of damned  Worries!

You were raised right, be proud of yourself for what you are is a product of your parents, and totally dig the shadows

My parents always have been there to help us and I'm just some sad shadow chaser.

It sure looks like someone making the gesture of surrender.
