2014 – Series – δύναμη (Strength)

Strength δύναμη.

A series of illustration created whilst dad was in Palliative care – from 11 Feb – 29 Mar 2014.

86 Stars for dad

Dear Cancer,  You vile and cruel disease.

 

Stronger

Strength visited me that day. In a dream.

 

Dear Dina, A letter from Cancer

 

 

Letting Go

Letting go. 1 – 21 March – I let him go. I tell dad to do what he needs to… we’ll be ok…

 

LettingGo_02

That was a difficult day for me.  21 March.  I’m not sure if it had an impact. One week later – my father wakes up, his first words. “I want to die”.

Scream

2 days before he passes. This is no way to live… let him go.

 

LastOne

Goodbye. A life without you.

    this is so powerful. it doesn’t seem like it, but letting go sometimes takes even more strength than holding on. you gave your father a gift. ♥

      Thank you so much. I hadn’t expected the affect it would have on me… I rarely tell anyone that I’m letting to… a just do it. Still… all a great lesson and don’t regret anything. Thanks for visiting :)

      Thank you so much, it was a difficult time for me, when I look back, I still can’t believe and raw and honest I was about it. Thanks for visiting, I appreciate your comments :)
