The Weekend in Black and White

I took this picture of my brother David in 2008,
when we were hiking in Italy's Cinque Terre; we took
the trip two years after he'd been diagnosed
with Stage 4 cancer.  He managed to hang with us until
April 2011 and stayed in character—energetic, positive, and
—until the end.  Missing you, David.

  1. That is a fine silhouette photo, but it is so sad to have lost your brother. Good you have such positive memories of him.

  2. What a lovely memento of your brother, caught in mid step too. Great photo, but I'm so sorry for your loss.

  3. “Into the Light.” Or reading your caption, I might say, “From the light (the light of himself), into The Light.”


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
