Share Your Snaps.#8. 40/51.#LifeThisWeek.101/2019.


Today’s post is dedicated to a good friend “I never met IRL”. Pam was a friend first from the art community on-line about 5 years ago, particularly the one called Daisy Yellow Art. I soon found over the past few years that Pam and I connected over quite a bit of shared history. She was an Aussie, living in the N.S.W. Central West. But she grew up near where I went to Teacher’s College in Balmain in the late 1960s. Pam was just a few years older than me but succumbed last week to a combination of serious conditions. She always cared for me and my health during cancer and I was able to share some of my art with her when she became more unwell. Her daughter shared the recent, sad news in a very small facebook group formed to support Pam through what was to be her last illness. I have her permission to share Pam’s image. Her funeral will be held later this week, and too far for me to attend, I will spend sometime by the water we both loved, reflecting on gratitude and friendship. Sending my love to her family and friends.



Mandalas for Pam.



The rest of the past month or so has been recorded on a few occasions.


North Kellyville P.S. Foundation Year Book Week. Proud Mum post.


When I need a time-out and want to feel closer to nature, it’s here I go.



The message for us all, is to live today as best we can. I know that Pam would want that for us all too.
Sending all my love to her family right now. These are very tough times.

Love is all we need. Take care, everyone.

Remembering Pam. Tiger Mother.

  1. I am really sorry to hear your sad news. I hope you find a way to say goodbye, or hold her memory close in memorial. xx

    • Thank you Lydia. I will go close to the water where I know she enjoyed some of my little vids and pics and think of her around the time of her funeral on Friday,

  2. Sorry to hear about your friend. I hope her family and friends have good support for this rough time.

    • Thanks Vanessa, they are supported but there is also distance between their homes but they will work things out. All are involved in some way for her funeral this Friday.

  3. Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. Praying for you and all those close to her in this sad time xx

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about your friend, Denyse but you have written a lovely tribute to her. Since my holiday my perspective has certainly changed and living for today is high up on my list. Have a beautiful week. #lifethisweek

    • Thank you Sue.

      I do try to remember what and why the relationship was special. I guess too, on-line is not always a barrier to knowing others.

      I look forward to learning more from you about your changes.

  6. That’s very sad news Denyse, I feel for you and Pam’s family. Your advice is spot on though ‘live today as best we can’.

    I enjoyed seeing your photos for this week’s prompt you certainly have a great attitude to life 🙂 The post I shared has some springtime snaps from my garden for everyone to enjoy.

    • Thanks so much Deb.

      It’s been a bit of topsy turvy time but I also want to celebrate the good and the now as well.

      PS Spring time from your garden? Can’t wait!

  7. So sorry to hear about your friend but what a beautiful tribute you have made to her here. Thinking of you at this sad time. As usual, I am off prompt but I am going to have lots of fun checking out everyone else’s pics!

  8. Your friend looks like she would have been a very sweet woman Denyse – it just shines from her face. Sorry you can’t make the funeral but glad you can spend some time honouring her memory here and at the beach. Loved all your pics and that study of yours looks perfect.

    • Thanks so much Leanne. Yes it is a lovely photo of her.

      In the past months illness took its toll.

      I will be honouring her life on Friday in my own way, by the water where I know she enjoyed me sharing my photos.

  9. I am sorry for your loss. Enjoy the memories of better times together.

  10. A beautiful tribute Denyse. I hope being by the water brings you a sense of connection and peace at the time she is fare-welled. I always enjoy your pics. Looks like you study is becoming a mix of haven and productivity. Xx

  11. Hi Denyse – I’m sorry to hear about your friend. I hope you fond memories of her and time in nature brought you some comfort. I want to thank you for hosting this link up and replying to all comments, as well as commenting on my blog. Please feel free to join in the Wellness Wednesday link up this week. The optional prompt is Gratitude.

  12. Condolences on the loss of your friend. I’m sure you have lots of awesome memories to keep you smiling now and then.

    • Thank you Betty. In losing a friend you have never met there is still a feeling of unreality. Tomorrow, when her funeral is held, I will go somewhere by the water to remember her love it too.
