Without Raja here, the past few days have been miserably lonely and quiet. It’s getting easier to come to terms with, definitely, but very slowly, and with frequent cycle-backs.
I think the best way to describe it is that it’s like losing your shadow.
A few things have been lifting my spirits, though, and keeping me going.
For one thing, the garden has sent up a new wave of vibrance that basically forced me to get up off the couch and pick up the camera for the first time in almost two weeks. Since I don’t really feel like writing much more, I’m just going to post the pictures and let you (hopefully) enjoy the colors–I definitely did.
