"Into The Light"

September 15th, 1997 ~ August 20th, 2011

My Beloved Dogen, who stood by my side for nearly 14 years, has left this world.
He lived a glorious life, loved and was loved, and passed with dignity.

I know that adding text like this breaks the 'rules', but in this case I don't care.
This is Dogen's memorial photograph, which I had printed in 5" x 7" to give to people who knew and loved him, and let them know of his passing.

I took this photo, and submitted it to the "Beloved" theme three years ago. In the time since then, whenever I looked at this image, I would choke up and feel teary-eyed. It forced me to think about the eventuality of his passing, and prepare myself mentally and emotionally. It also helped me to enjoy, love, and appreciate him even more during the time we had left together.
