La tristesse

Cimetière de Passy
One of thousands of statues
in Paris cemeteries,
this one resonated with me.

Il me manque énormément

I have been away from blogging for many months now and I thought that it was time to return. I lost my darling husband and my loving mother and broke my leg all during five days last April. Thank you for all who emailed me, concerned about my absence. I am healing and recovering as I find reasons to be happy.

Bonjour ma chère Génie,

Je suis navrée pour toutes ces misères qui ont bouleversé ta vie. Je te présente toutes mes sincères condoléances.
Bienvenue à nouveau dans le monde de la blogosphère... Je ne suis pas toujours très régulière mais tellement heureuse à chaque fois que je découvre ton univers.

Gros bisous 🌺

Oh, my dear. I have missed you and was glad to see you back. That is so much sadness for one tender heart to bear. You are in my thoughts.

One always say that time will heal! I do hope that in time it will get less painful! Welcome back to blogging, where you can be sure to be loved!

What a sad news Genie, a terrible time for you to go through. I had missed you indeed, saw you going down on my side line for some time which always means someone is not posting anymore. You never know what the reason is, but mostly not a happy one. I hope so you will find some joy in blogging again, you make beautiful photos and I always loved to read your blog. Keep going and know we bloggers support each other.
Love, Marianne

I am so sorry for your loss. When you weren't posting I was very worried that something had happened in your life - I am so glad you are back and hopefully can feel the love of those who enjoy your photos and travels daily. I'm sure I speak for all who visit your site - we send our support.

I am sorry for your losses, and pleased to see you back again.

This is haunting.

So sorry for your loss and difficult year.

Interestingly, you have come back to "Paris." If that's not testament to the power this city holds for so many of us, I don't know what is. Paris will heal and feed your soul.

All the best.

You have each reinforced my desire to return to blogging where I have "met" some of the most talented and compassionate people. Thank you for your heartwarming welcome on my return.

Genie, you returned with a most appropriate image. The statue at the same time shows sadness but looks forward. You will bear your losses the rest of your life, but you will also find happiness and reasons to laugh.
