Today I am very sad, as I have been since Monday when I learned that my cousin’s daughter had suddenly lost her life. Alesondra was a beautiful young woman who touched many lives and is one of the threads in the cloth of a close-knit family that reaches far and wide.

A friend of mine once had a flower shop called Bittersweet Botanicals. I asked why the name and she said flowers are shared to mark  life’s passages, both sweet and bitter.  Today I send flowers, both in physical form and in the ethers of the internet, to mark this passing.

The flowers are in color and black and white, in some ways similar to the sweet and bitter of life.  May their beauty and mandala shape bring solace and peace in this hardest of times.
