Wordless Wednesday: Of course he knew

Gavin took this snapshot on our next-to-last vacation, a trip we took to the mountains just before he found out he'd need spine surgery. This was after a fairly peaceful summer of chemo, opiates, and naps, before the catastrophic and fast and bumpy ride down.

He was known for drawings of chairs and tables with no people in them, and often worked from snapshots. This chair is looking out at the golf course, just off the lodge patio.

I found it after he died, and now, I think when he shot this, he must have known.

I just found your blog today..holla! My husband passed away four years ago, and I just started writing about it by way of my blog. Anyway, to the point of my comment...finding things like this often give me mixed feelings. Comfort on one hand, in that I see something in the image that brings me peace. But also on the other hand, even four years later, I am saddened by the reality that the image is all that is left. Sometimes, if I'm not expecting to find a picture or some other reminder, it still takes my breath away.
