Hallowed ground

Hallowed ground, originally uploaded by Mika_I.

When I shot this photo in Finland over Christmas, I didn’t intend for it to gain any other meaning. It just looked visually pleasing at the time.

However, after the passing of my youngest sister’s maternal grandfather, it put me in a contemplative mood. He was for a time like a grandfather to me too, and his passing made me reflect on how I let that relationship slip. And I can’t really think of anything that doesn’t sound like excuses.

But I will remember him as a warm and gentle man, and my thoughts are with my sister and her mother and cousins.
