    I am still alive.
    After Roy passed May 5, I Moved, was burglarized and then lost my Mom on July 23.
    So I have not shot much.
    I am trying to get back into things again.
    Shooting only my GRD 3 and my Nokia 808.

    Sorry to hear your losses. Nice to see your beautiful shot. Photography helps me to rest my mind. I was off for a while due to move, job change, etc but now I am starting again...

    We've missed you, Lili. But we're glad you're back. Tragedy has a habit of hitting us in closely spaced events; it's like the Fates are cheering "Hey, let's kick her while she's down!" This clearly has been a terrible year for you. I've endured years like this myself and it takes time for the hurting to fade. But rest assured that it does fade and things will get better. You will catch your breath and find your bearings. There will be a new start. Here's hoping that our comraderie will help you through it all. Please stay in touch.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Welcome back Lili. Sounds like a very very trying period for you. I wish you the best and look forward to seeing more of you and from you... Grief and healing take time, but life goes on too, so try to make the most of it as you're able to...
