Grandpa McEldowney

"Everything I Know About the Four Most Important Topics That Arise"

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've been slightly busy and just a bit lazy. :) My husband and I will be moving back to Illinois for good in a short period of time, so we've been packing a bit and he's been studying for his finals.

The picture above is one of a series of photos that I have done for Jon's family. I took photos of the flowers in the arrangements at Jon's grandfather's funeral and then used my editing techniques on them. The text on the photo above was actually written by my husband's grandfather:

Everything I Know About the Four Most Important Topics That Arise

That one day I was born.
That some day I will die.
That I thank God for both of these.

That freedom can't be given.
That love can not be taken.
That nothing else I've known is worth the having.

-David McEldowney, 1977

You can see the rest of the series here.
So it may be a while before I post again, due to the whole moving thing. Until next time! :)
