The loss of a loved one can creep up on you even you are in the midst of a fantastic vacation. Yesterday, I took a shower around sunset. I looked out the window and noticed the sun start its dip behind the mountain horizon on Karpathos. Even though our place in on the eastern side of the island, the horseshoe-shaped harbor can provide sunset views with both the mountains and the sea in view, which can be seen from, amongst other places, our bathroom window. Long story short, the sunset got me. I was both soapy and teary-eyed. So today, I decided to do something about that.
As I’ve said before, Mammy loved a good seaside sunset. So tonight, after an early dinner, we got some ice cream, another item Mammy loved, and ate it while watching the sunset. Here’s to you, Mammy. You would have loved both the ice cream and the view.
