Robin Botie of Ithaca, New York, photoshops changes in landscape and life.This (losing a loved one, losing a child) changes us. We are not the same as we used to be. If the wilds of grief do not completely destroy you, they may turn you into a better person. More compassionate, more grateful, more aware of how fragile life is, and more conscious of the closeness of death.

    Simple, powerful, and true. I love the image, too, and already shared this on my FB page. I couldn’t wait. Thank you for saying this so well, Robin.

      You know how sometimes there just isn’t enough time to write and photograph and do an interesting subject justice? It was just before my birthday weekend and I wanted to make a 3-day celebration for myself. I was running out of time and decided to post my blog early so I could focus on shopping and eating out with friends without thinking about anything else. So I wrote the shortest paragraph and photo-shopped one of my longest photos, and hoped the post would pass. Thank you so much for sharing it. I guess keeping simple isn’t a bad idea sometimes. Cheers, Elaine.
