Member's Choice at :iconmanipulatethis:

Would like to share this one, because this is a very personal piece. I finished it a couple of days after the passing away of my mother, at 69, to cancer she had first been diagnosed with only a few months previously.

I finished this literally with tears in my eyes, telling myself life will go on. And it does. :heart: Never give up.

:-o Thank you very much for the comment and the feature, sorry for not replying before. :hmm: I've been thinking about the manipulation... How about you have a look at my gallery, pick a poem and build your manipulation on that? :blush: I'd like that a lot!
