Photograph: "Summer Dreams Past"

A child's butterfly bracelet dangling from the fingers of the Black Angel.  Taken in Fairview Cemetery in Council Bluffs, Iowa. (A few more pictures I've taken of the angel can be found here.)

"Summer Dreams Past"
by Bruce H.
Walking through Omaha and Council Bluffs has become a walking meditation for me.  Similar to the Camino, when you walk your mind wanders from the past, through the present, and on to the future.  Lately my mental meanderings have become nostalgic, dark, and full of regret while still having a shimmer of hope and anticipation of the Appalachian Trail adventures that lay ahead of me.

It is the small and simple things, like a child's bracelet in an unexpected place, that bring me back from the brink and returns me to the future.
