Yesterday marked a full week without my dear Basty. Feelings are less raw; the tears have been replaced with yearning.
For the past week, I have been retracing our steps, walking the trails we marked many times. It has been cathartic. I particularly appreciate when I encounter someone who notices he is absent, it emphasises how popular he was.
I am going through the many photos he starred in over the past 15 years, picking out the best for a memory project. The feature image in this post was from a trip to Harrison, BC in June 2004, while with Dodo on one of her trips to Canada.
