Michael is the non-blood brother of my step daughter. Stories get convoluted. He is now about 54. He lost his first wife of 16 years to cancer, then after a long time met and married his current wife. Michael is now battling cancer himself and recently got news that has given him good reason to make final preparations. All hope for recovery is not lost…yet, but the outlook is grim.
He became a pretty good photographer and shared many of his photos on Facebook. He also enjoyed writing Haiku poetry. As part of his ‘preparations’ he asked any and all of his friends on Facebook to participate in creating a book for his wife, Gretchen……comprised of his photographs and haikus, and being curated and assembled by a good friend. Everyone could choose whatever combination they liked most and send a page in any medium.
This is mine. It’s about 6x7” on cherry PG.
It’s a very sad story, but the project is a good and worthy one. I am counting my blessings as I write.
