Wonderful abstract image Meryl. Love the intense contrast between the green and yellow leaves ~ droplets and black background. And your verse evoked feeling… Yes — having lack of confidant and remaining in the dark with one’s emotions — so painful. Love the way you tied such an emotional topic together with your striking image here….excellent post!! ~RL xo

I appreciate your very sensitive insight into this piece…was a bit scary to put this out there…but I do go through periods when it’s difficult to reach out and go into a sort of hiding…and yes, it’s painful…I try to be upbeat here but at the same time am trying to show more of myself…thanks for the encouragement as always…xoxm

I like the green water droplets, is a photograph with special vibrations, comfort to the eye and soul.
Sometimes my friend Meryl disappear as your ghosts in photos, but I always remember you …

Excellent description of the numbness, paralysis, and emotional retreat that often come with depression. But look, even a hosta gets to be in the sunshine once in a while!

Thanks Jeff, it was a little frightening to put this out there , but felt that numbness, that retreat for a day or so earlier in the week when I took this picture of my beloved hostas and the words came to me quite magically when I gazed at the image. And yes, now I’m in sunshine….:)
