This is more or less where I was standing when I heard the sad news that Alice was finally no more. My feet were wandering through a park where I had spent many a happy childhood hour heading towards the beach, my hands were snapping away with the camera while my eyes tried to find something cheerful to look at. Eldest Daughter and Little Sister had walked on ahead to give me a few moments quiet time with the news I received by phone, unable to reach out and hold Alice for just one last time. I looked around for something to hold her memory with a happier thought at a later date and somehow the camera took this picture on its own.
I’ve another visit to see Little Sister this weekend and I might, or might not re-visit the park this time, but when I finally do this will be Alice’s spot and I’ll remember the happy times with a smile.
This one’s for “Alice“.
