Did you happen to look up to the heavens Sunday evening,
September 8, 2013, shortly after sunset?
I did, because I knew the Moon and Venus
would be sharing space,
close enough to capture them in the same frame.
I looked up yesterday evening, September 9, 2013, and already they had parted ways.
The Moon is easily recognizable. Venus is the small white dot, to the right of the Moon.
Thanks to fellow bloggers, I am now aware of this weeks significance. It is Suicide Awareness Week, from Sunday, September 8 until Sunday, September 15. I will always remember you, dear brother, even though I no longer see you.
Your smile etched
in the interior,
Your hug warmed
the cold wind,
it now penetrates.
Your laughter lifted
me to the moon,
You told me not to worry,
you were doing fine.
You were not okay,
you were wrong.
I ask you, what is that feeling at the bottom of your stomach, when your mouth gapes open and your eyes become wide? Reflecting back on our recent trip to Sedona, I feel the churning and the utter amazement at Arizona’s diversity. From Flagstaff to Sedona, Phoenix to Tucson, along with a day trip to the Grand Canyon, a flush of memories overload my brain and send me scurrying to capture the essence of what I saw, heard, felt and tasted.
Perhaps a few pictures will help as I feel lost in the thoughts…please be patient as I unscramble the emotions and lasting impression Arizona has left on my heart. There are certain places that leave a lasting impact and Sedona is on my mind…
Journey with me
to a time and place
not just in a dream
