April was a blur and a constant balancing act between darkness and light in many ways. We were dealing with the loss of a family member, the funeral and the grief, all of which left us devastated and feeling surreal.
On the brighter side, spring was especially beautiful this year and I managed to take the odd photograph here and there to capture it all, even though for much of the month I let my camera rest because I just couldn’t bring myself to pick it up every day. I think the mosaic above illustrates the different extremes on the mood scale that prevailed in April quite well.
