It was a clear cold evening. I had just returned home and saw the moon in the sky from the driveway. The illuminated Venus pulled at my heart, as it often did back then. As I looked at it, my heart swelled with love, memories, and emotion. Photographing it seemed to help ease the pain, and made me feel closer to home, closer to her. She is different now, but in ways the same. I feel helpless in her need, and find it difficult to cope at times. But life goes on.
