Seven Years | A Tribute to Rich

(A personal tribute to my heart’s companion in travel and in love.)

Travel | love | photography | tribute | adventure | Olympus | Nikon | camera | Images by RJM It’s been seven years since Rich died.

As I recently told a friend, in some ways it feels like an eternity ago; in other ways, just yesterday.

I’ve had some adventures that he would have enjoyed … and others that he probably would not.

And So It Began

Rich gave me my first Olympus camera, and a few pointers on composition, in December of 2006.

I loved it so much that I bought an upgrade, and took it to New Zealand, a country he loved and urged me to visit “someday.” I did, for an entire month in February of 2013!

Milford Sound: Breathtaking!

I added a Nikon, and then another, and found my passion for photography. That passion has been an important piece in rekindling my enthusiasm in life.

Dank je wel!

My life has changed a lot in the past seven years, and while I would never, ever want to relive those years I am grateful for the gifts this life experience has given me.

The following photos capture just a few of the highlights. (Believe me, it was hard to choose just a few!)

Thank you, Rich. You touched my life – and my heart – in countless ways, and I am forever changed. I love you.

“When the day shall come that we do part,” he said softly, and turned to look at me, “if my last words are not ‘I love you’-ye’ll ken it was because I didna have time.”
Diana Gabaldon “The Fiery Cross”

  1. Made me cry – so poignant, raw, sweet and loving. Although on a happier note, I’m so proud of your photography skills, and am envious of your travels. You are one put-together lady!

  2. A beautiful tribute. Whenever I see a dragonfly, I think of Rich. I saw a beautiful black one yesterday, out of the blue, and it seemed random at the time. Now it makes sense. Hello Rich!
    Love, Elizabeth

    • Yes, he shows up in the most random moments – he preferred to be a little unorthodox. =)
