white space for susanne


VERY much inspired by Françoise Melzani!!! I adore her art and techniques. I get the feeling that I have to touch her pages... all that structure!

BUT something happened yesterday.
One of my first friends in life died. My age, not even 47.
Many years ago, she got the diagnose "crohn's disease" and she got morphine to ease the pain. Now, many years later, she died a death caused by morphine. She didn't want to live anymore, she had had enough. But what kind of life did she have?

I feel so sad.

And then I read that Michelle Ward will end her monthly "themes" this month. I didn't join in very much , but I sure will miss the inspiration she gave me each month!!! This time she asks for some "white space" on a page. So this will be my "white space entry' to her last GPP street team theme "restraining order".

What if?

What if?

What if?

What if you had had another start in life...?



Springs arrival and new hope?


This one is for you, Susanne!

  2. Beautiful and perfect for the GPP challenge. I feel the same way, despite not joining in too much - I love the challenges and find the whole site inspiring.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. It's at times like these that we question so much and life can seem so unfair. I think we have to learn to seize the day and go with it, but it certainly puts our niggling worries in perspective. I hope you find comfort in the happy memories xxx

  7. My sympathy for your loss. Crohn's is terrible to live with but the loss of a friend is awful in a different way. Your tribute to her is beautiful, and I am sure she is smiling at it.
