B&W Challenge: Picture of Holidays (Photo de Vacances)

Yeah, i know holidays are suppose to be cheery...

September marks the first month of the Christmas Holiday here in the Philippines. Because it’s the beginning of the "ber" months.. Oh well, but for me, it's around this time of the year that a certain fear creeps back to my being. My old readers would know why, it’s because I have this fear of December. The reason? There is always, always, either tragic happening on this fateful month, or something so significant that it changes my life from then on. If you care to find out what, the archives on the sidebar remains there for a reason.. But I hope this year would be different. As a close relative will have their wedding on this month. Sincerely wish them all the happiness. I hope they wont end up as most abrupt marriages do.

Sorry, but if this December would not be tragic, then that would make me feel at ease. This photo was taken on Christmas 2004. Year after my mom passed, the year i got my surgery, and year before somebody i love got very ill. And a couple of more deaths on different years preceding this. Maybe this photo is so meaningful it brings back joy and sorrow all at the same time.

Oh my, i think my insomnia is getting into me. Four more hours before my night job starts and i still havent had a decent sleep. And reading my archives and looking at old photos adds more tension. There are just some feelings that can't disappear, they just get buried. Some may almost disintegrate, some still get unearthed.

sorry to hear of your sadness and your insomnia
i've had my share of both but at present it's the latter which is bugging me
if i can't sleep tonight
i'll whistle to let you know
(my wife will then shoot me - problem solved) :)
good luck - both problems are serious
but both will fade

December. The beginning of the "ber" months. That's the first time I heard of it.

One wishes for you a happy December this year.

Take care lady.
