Sad Times

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue March. 30, 2020 998 views

Yes, I'm still in my boots, but barely able to be an enthusiastic or at least a joyful photographer.

After 5 years of cancer treatments and hospital visits on an almost regular basis I should be prepared to watch the bright warm light of my beloved mother becoming a very small helpless flame. Nevertheless we are still fighting together battle after battle in a long lost war against pancreatic cancer. Our hope will die last.

Therefore going for a nice photo walk is out of question. I photographed the renovation of our kitchen - just for documentation. Of course I take some pictures once in a while with my mobile when I'm walking the dog. That's all. No fun, colors, ideas or something sparkling is visible in my pictures, just the moody and sad side of my soul.

Yes, Felix. He has not the right personality to be trained as a therapy dog. Nevertheless he is the perfect dog, to let my mother know, how much he loves her. The little dog is jumping in her lap and the last week on to her bed just to be with her. He isn't doing it with anybody else but her! He knows ...

Just some pictures, to proof I'm still alive and still full of hope I won't catch Covid-2019.

Photographers, friends please stay at home and stay healthy.

Vici, Mama & Felix

Thanks for stopping in. Yes, we have all missed you and good to see some photos from you. I know you are tired and stressed and we will all be praying for you all. I know it's tough.

Thanks!
As long there will be some hope "tough" isn't a problem, but I fear the worst will happen very soon.

Stay strong my dear friend. Life keeps throwing us curved balls.

"Curved balls", when we have to "flatten the curve" by staying  at home it's not easy to stay strong. It sucks!

It is nice to meet again here, even if it is in these difficult times that we are going through, but be of great courage, that we will get out of this. A big hug from Spain.

Thanks, we try to do our best! heart 
I like the kitchen too, but it would be really nice if all things would have been fixed before this damned virus. The italian manufacturer didn't deliver the water taps (kitchen and bathroom!!!) in time. Now we have to live for a long time without a water tap in the bathroom. At least there is a shower, but it isn't very comfortable and doesn't work so well (very hot or very cold). I made a prophecy: as soon as we will used to it as soon all thing will be perfect again. We try very hard since 4 weeks ... In the kitchen are two water taps one for hot and one for cold water. I'm sure, I will never be happy about this situation and I don't want to get used to it!

It will be a long way to go. Right now, there is no light at the end of a very long tunnel.
