The Embodiment of My Feelings

Such profound sadness.

A visit to the Palazzo Massimo with @domenicododaro
But the photo is very good, with that black background

Well caotured. I wonder if he had a really sad life to have a busy made that reflects such sadness.

Sometimes there is such a comfort of kinship in art. When you find something that reflects the place your own heart is in at that moment, it still hurts but you know you are not alone.

I think this is one of the best portrait of a man of all times!

The artist really did convey the sadness so well.

I feel your sadness Junko. I still have my husband and can only imagine how that must feel but I lost my teenage daughter 20 years ago... I guess I've learnt to hide the sadness.

@bella_ss -- Dear Sheralee, when I read your comment, it made me feel such pain for your loss. This is a loss I cannot imagine. 20 years ago . . . with each passing year you must think of how old she would have been, imagine what her life might have been. I'm so sorry for this terrible loss in your life.

@jyokota Thank you Junko. I guess what I was trying to say is we learn to live with it but never stop missing them. I also can't imagine how it must be for you.

@bella_ss you've stated so succinctly, what I hope to be able to say eventually. Right now, I feel like I can't live with this pain.

@jyokota And everyone wishes they could hug you and take the pain away :(

@jyokota @bella_ss I have hit the "delete" key at least twice, but I did want to give voice to your losses, recent and older, and the pain that accompanies them. I can't imagine... but I guess we all have to do more than imagine, eventually. Bless you both.
