“This Photograph is my proof. There was that afternoon, when things were still good between us, and she embraced me, and we were so happy. It did happen. She did love me. Look see for yourself!”

This is My Proof, Duane Michals, 1974

This is breaking my heart.

    Is this why we take photos? As proof of a life lived?
    Bittersweet, with a few drops of salty tears. Thank you for this post.

    Warm tears are currently streaming down my neck as I type this. I’m touched and also devestated.

    God! It feels so close to home… Right now, that’s exactly the load on my shoulders. Going through pics and saying to myself, “He loved me. He did. Love doesn’t die. It just changes”… Totally heartbroken.
