I'm back after the longest gap ever. I did not mention the reason
of my being away because I did not imagine that my father's health
would deteriorate so much that nothing could alleviate his pain.
The past three weeks have been the most harrowing time for my family
to see a loved one struggling to survive against odds that seemed to
outweigh everything else. But thank God, some kind of stability, if
it can be termed that, did come. And although he is bed-ridden now,
the pain has been reduced somewhat.
Between tears, prayers, and trips to hospital and home, I took these
shots. My beautiful hometown is surrounded by blue hills. And from the
hospital, dawn seemed to carry more promise. Or was it that I was seeking
a desperate reason for more scenes as promising as day break across these
View of the hills from my parents' backyard.
Part of the town near the hospital.
The backyard again. Sunrise scene.
All the other photographs were taken near the hospital and home.
Thank you to all my visitors and also to everyone who commented
on my last post. I'll soon be posting on garden wildlife and
of course, blooms!
