a pleasant summers eve by swissloko a pleasant summers eve by swissloko
isn't it wonderful if you have the time and state of mind to enjoy such a simple yet wonderful sight at the end of a fulfilled day?

dd edit:

(copy/paste from my journal)

phew... one of my pictures was chosen as a daily deviation.

first i would like to thank :iconjanedoe87: very much for suggesting the image and make this experience happen for me :)

but this unexpected exposure puts me in a contrast bath of feelings.

on one side i'm excited to see what everyone has to say how she or he sees the image or what moves them about it...

on the other side i'm not at all in the mood for joy since a very good friend of many years is about to die as i write these lines.
yesterday evening i drove for four hours to the hospital where he lies in intensive care to be with him and hold his hand for a while.
the cancer has now spread to his brain and bones and talking and staying focused is very hard for him.

as the image "a pleasant summers eve" is a visual memory of a summer past i would like to dedicate it to Heinz and remember him as the intelligent, compassionate and witty person he always was.

sorry for raining on my own parade.

loko

edit [04/28/08]:
Heinz has passed away peacefully in the night from the 21st to the 22nd.
Thank you for all the good wishes for him.

beautiful image and i'm soooo sorry for the loss of your friend Heinz. :( i hope your heart is gently healing. i had a similar experience. i got a DD on my stock account on May 25 a couple days after learning that one of my cats has cancer. it was a nice distraction but i know exactly what you mean about the contrast of feelings. :hug:

hey there kel..
thanks for liking the pic.

with heinz all is well. it came to a situation where it was a relief for him to be able to go. and i am happy for the time we had instead of sad for the time lost.

thanks for the nice comment.

I understand that. My mom recently lost her boyfriend to lung cancer. It is very much a relief when their suffering ends. It's one of the hardest things on Earth to watch a loved one die of cancer. I'm really sorry you had to go through it but I'm glad Heinz is resting now. Thanks for your nice return comments. :hug:

its really sad about your freaind who has cancer.
my grandad has cancer too, and its a really rare one which affects his skin and so its really hard for him to have radiation treatment, so he is pretty sick at the moment. :(
