August 20th

Hi from my Mom’s place in Victoria.  Today, August 20th, is a bittersweet day for us.  This day marks two years since my Dad died.  Time is a strange thing…in some ways, August 20, 2014 seems like a lifetime ago.  In other ways, it seems like yesterday.  Today, Mom and I didn’t focus on what we lost, together we celebrated the man my Dad was, the fact we had him with us for as long as we did, and that his passing was fast and as comfortable as could have been possible.  We both miss him and of course think of him daily.  But celebrating him (and us) made the day a good one.  We toasted him, we went on a long Saanich Penninsula drive, which was one he loved, and we spent the day together, just like we did two years ago.  Here are some of the photos I took today, in honour of my Dad….who gave me my love of photography.  I hope he’s looking down with pride.
