Reflections on loss | Those who know me personally would know that I lost my wife to a prolonged and debilitating illness just before New Year's. She was the love, light and locus of my life, and her passing, though expected, is incredibly unsettling. Being in this place makes me respect all of you who have known loss and moved beyond it so much more. I now find myself with an incomprehensible amount of time and space to process. Thankfully, taking photos is as therapeutic as ever. This weekend, I bought myself a new kit, and stepped out for a photowalk after months. I ended up at Humayun's Tomb, a place both of us loved and frequented. What had always been a pretty building had now assumed a deeper meaning. It now spoke to me of loss, of quietude, of reflection, and of beauty. And in that, I found happiness at being able to understand and appreciate life still. With these baby steps, I now come back to this page of mine, to hopefully share new perspectives. Hello.
