It was exactly a month after my mom’s passing from cancer when I took this picture. It was memorial day weekend. And I was looking for inspiration, for hope, I was lost and still trying to figure things out, about hope, and how to continue on when faith is doubted. Breaking out of my sad and miserable shell I dressed up all in white that day, I wanted to feel cheerful, happy and against all odds and opposite to my culture and tradition’s for a mourning person especially grieving for the loss of her mother. Spontaneously I drove to the coast of Amalfi and it was beautiful day, I found a glimpse of a beautiful world. What i learned that day is to continue to live no matter what,That we must take the good with the bad regardless how bad it feels sometimes there is also and always something beautiful to compare it with, Like the saying “count your blessings This picture is dedicated to my mom and all those who were and have been there for me during the most difficult time in my life. I think I found a glimpse of hope that day.
