I went to the wake for a friend’s mother-in-law a couple weeks ago. It’s always hard/sad going to a wake. My Mom told me I should bring my camera and after the wake go someplace and take photos. As always Mom was right. Taking pictures makes me feel calmer as I’m in the moment and not thinking ahead of myself.
Since I was already in Pembroke I drove over to the herring run. The flow of the brook was very soothing. A reminder that life continues to flow and we are all part of that energy forever.
