Circle of Life

I apologize for the lack of posting. A couple of weeks ago my Uncle Sol had a stroke and then a week later my Uncle Dan (shown above) had pneumonia and a heart attack. He passed two days ago while we were celebrating Kaiyaiyai's 3rd birthday in San Francisco. Thankfully I was with surrounded by my favorite people when I found out the news. With all this life happening all around me I feel like I am on really fast train that I cannot stop. I just want to stop time and hug Lola and Lolo and say, "Please promise me you'll be here for ever." But as we know time does not stop for anyone. I am trying to be present more than ever now, especially with my parents. I vowed to myself not take anytime that we share for granted because we only have such a short time here.

I so glad that I was able to capture this picture of Uncle Dan reaching to touch Nainoa's chubby arms. I remember him saying in Tagalog, "Look how big he is!" I remember taking this picture because I liked how the light was shining on Uncle Dan. Now he is with that light. Rest in peace Uncle.
