We are eternal beings who will never be separated from our loved ones. ~ R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D.

I wanted to share an idea of what we can do with pictures of our loved ones. Nancy Gershman, a digital artist, creates meaningful portraits from photos, memories and stories that we think about every day. Here is a sample of her work:
DREAMSCAPE PHOTOMONTAGE: Myrtle pays homage to the memory of her twin and keeps a promise to her sister. As long as she lives she will keep her nephew - who is a trucker - safe on the road.
I know Nancy's work and I’ve seen how she captures the entire essence of a person and the real truth about their character, their passions and their mission in life.
What Nancy does is digest all these photos, memories and stories until they re-emerge as a holistic portrait of the person you love. You see your father, sister, or beloved poodle, thoughtfully placed into a beautiful legacy portrait for you, but also for generations to come. The end result is that her artwork makes you smile or even laugh.
For the 30 - 60 minutes you spend with her by phone, she delivers a meaningful, heartfelt fine art photomontage in the form of an 8 x 10 print (or enlargement). She can also upload the artwork so you can make something to wear or display (photoblanket, photo-purse, photo trivet, etc.) -- however you want to keep that loved one close by.
I encourage you to view the documentary on Nancy Gershman’s work.

I live in Oregon, and for the past five plus days, we have had steady rain, with a bit of wind. The forecasters say we have yet another week of this weather. It may sound silly, but, I wonder if it isn't my love crying because the reality of his death and our separation is settling in now that it has been two months since he was killed by a drunk driver.
You see, we have had a history of "Eris", a goddess of chaos. My Jene-Paul use to blame her for our…Continue

After my father's death, I became so emotionally unstable and I have had a lot of trouble motivating myself to do anything including being alive. My dog came to live with me 2 months ago because she gave me a sense of purpose having to take care of her and she helped me pull my self together and comfort me. I had been doing much better with her by my side and for the first time since I lost my dad I felt like I had my life together and could move forward. Today she had to go live with my mom…Continue
I'm trying to leave all these pain full thoughts behind and move forward , its not easy as my shrink says ..... How do u forgive your own mom for pushing u away when my dad was ill and died that's my main pain full thing ...
I went through all my husband's old emails looking for the last two friends of his that I haven't been able to locate to notify them of his death. I discovered many things. I read some horrible things he thought about me but never told me. Things he said to other people about me and discussed at length. He was very sick near the end and things weren't always happy between us but I took care of him and worked and raised our kids and was the sole bread winner for the family which can put a lot…Continue
