Don't grieve alone; 12,000 members and growing
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.

My sisters husband left her 3 months ago just walked out, today she rang me and told me that he's come back, and all I could do was put the phone down and sob and sob, I should be happy for, she was devastated when he left, but all I feel is jealously and anger because she has her man back and I will never have mine back, I hate that I've become this jealous monster, who can't stand to see people happy, this is not who I am ,or this is not who I was, too be honest I don't know who the hell…Continue
I miss you.
I wish that was enough to accurately describe how I feel, but it does not even come close. I don’t just miss you; I feel so much more than a mere longing.
I miss your laugh, your lame jokes, your hugs, your voice, and your presence in my life. I miss your “hi” text in he mornings we weren’t together, the “be there soon” and the hours of time we spent together just talking and sharing our dreams and hopes. I miss you. I miss you. I miss you. I can’t say it…Continue
I posted this on Facebook and thought it should be shared here as well.
Finally going to say this that has been on my mind for over a week now. I want to give you my take on Halloween. Did you know that zombies and ghosts that everyone will be dressing up and pretending to be are nothing like their real life counterparts? You see, zombies and ghosts do exist in everyday life.
Want zombies? They bare little resemblance to their fictional…

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
