Gallery #9: After the Harvest Series
In late October of 2005 I was walking through an orchard after the trees had been harvested. I was very troubled as I had just heard the news that a beloved friend was losing her battle with breast cancer and had only a short time to live.
As I walked through the filtering light, I noticed that there was beautiful ripe fruit left behind after the harvesters had gone...and it reminded me of a richly lived life cut short with still so much to offer. It was such a waste.
Lovely Monica passed away a few weeks later, leaving behind so much. But it was then that I realized that nothing in her life had been wasted. Friends and loved ones picked up and continued her legacy of joy and love.
I dedicated this series to Monica Gotz and her short but fruitful life. She is loved and missed.
