I'm constantly amazed at how good cel phone cameras have gotten. I daresay most smartphones probably have what would have been considered a top-of-the-line point-and-shoot digital camera way back in the day. I spent a long weekend snapping photos of our journey to Eastern Washington and back, to see the Mister's family. It's amazing to see how drastically different both sides of the state look, when you go from rainy, mountainous Evergreen Western WA to the big sky, rolling farmland of Eastern WA.
It was a bittersweet time with family. There had been a recent loss, one whose memory will be cherished forever, and their absence is sadly felt. The drive home, through the springtime fields that were just starting to show signs of this season's harvest, and the skies that gave us a brief rainbow as we sped along down the highway, were like little signs from something greater than us. A reassurance that souls find their way home, and that our loved ones never truly leave us.
