letting go by pistache

letting go

trying hard to let go ... of fear and worry and the weight of uncertainty ... our son made it back on the last flight out of sydney which was so lucky ... 23 hours in the plane, with a refuel at darwin, but no getting off ... his bags stayed in sydney unfortunately, and who knows when he'll see them, but that is small fry considering how people are suffering around the world. so he's home, but unhugged, as he's isolating for a fortnight. we are lucky to have some space, so are redesigning rooms a little to create a safe zone for him to be in, and he's being waited on hand and foot, which people might say would suit a young man, but actually all our boys are incredibly helpful and good at cooking, so he can't wait to get back in the kitchen.

and this image is about letting go, but also the idea of floating free, which to some may feel full of hope and excitement, but to me carries more of a freight of apprehension and not knowing. at least at times. and at other times, for example today, when i have spent a good while fiddling with this image, i can feel relatively calm. sending all good things to all you lovely 365-ers
What wonderful news that you son is safely with you back home. I hope he gets his bags at some stage in the future. I love this image you have created as it definitely supports your title, words and feelings at this time.

So glad your son made it home. Nothing else matters. Your image (for me) represents how most of us are feeling - not really in control.

Good news your son is home again. My daughter and her partner are living in Germany at the moment. No chance of making it out.

Hope you keep finding things to help calm and still your mind. An audio book and jigsaw are helping me.

Great he’s back! Wonderful symbolic image! Stay safe!

I feel more of what you said from this shot...less floating free and more being blown hither and thither without control. Of course, I may just be projecting my own emotions on your image.

Pleased your son has made it back home

It is hard to be so out of control Clare and I can so identify with the emotions and feelings you describe. So glad you have your son home - that must be a great relief. The two weeks will soon pass. Take care. The image expresses things so well.

A lovely image to match your eloquent words

So happy to hear your son is home safe! This image is expertly done! To me, even though the colors are fairly cheerful, it depicts feeling out of control and being blown in an unknown direction.
