I made the collage at the top about 8 years ago.
In the photo is my grandpa and great-grandpa.
The caption says :
Does putting wings on him now help my heart pretend he was gentler then?
The middle collage was made yesterday.
In the photo is my mom and her dad...my grandpa...the little boy in the first collage.
The words: She decided it was safe to wear her pink dress of healing.
The photo - me and my mom.
This was taken a few weeks ago. We are sitting in the middle of the Owens Valley on a cold morning.
So, to answer the question in the first collage regarding my great-grandpa...the answer is no.
He was not a gentle man and I can't pretend he was.
I can choose to be more gentle now.
