Still Life - Family Portraits

P.Holley wanted to live by the sea. Now in free floating the seas, she is a mermaid.

Life changes.  Everything is life changes.  Changes are the constant in life.  I know these things, but in the knowing I am still shaken sometimes.  My Seoul mate, whom I met in Seoul, Korea is now just that - a soul.  Her body left this Earth last May.  She had many more things on her bucket list.  Many of those things involved travel.  Her many friends have continued the journey of her body by traveling to far places and far flinging her ashes.  I was one of those friends.  We went to the beach. We finally went to the beach.  It was a most magical time.  A hawk flew with me to the water.  Pelicans put on a show of synchronicity that I was able to record on video.  It was an overcast day, so we had the place to ourselves.  Just her and my best friend of many decades and I were walking the beach.  Some of her now rests beneath the white sands, and some of her resides in places the ocean has taken her.
